My suggestion would be to try either LyX (What You See Is What You Mean)


  or TeXMacs (what you see is what you want).


Either of these should be better able to handle large equations and  
complex documents than Word (I wonder if you don't have some physical  
problem w/ your PC or other difficulty w/ your Windows installation  
--- that's an awful lot of crashing --- I'd suggest doing a hardware  
diagnostic to at least test your memory).

To typeset the file which you provided in LaTeX you simply need to add:


to the beginning of the document (called the preamble)

and then close out the document w/:


You'll also need to indicate the ampersand in the title should appear  
as an ampersand --- set it as for instance:

Mishkov, Rumen L. Generalization of the Formula of Faa Di Bruno for a  
Composite Function with a Vector Argument Internat. \emph{J. Math. \&  
Math. Sci.} Vol 24, No. 7 (2000) 481-491.

Once you've made the above changes, the file you provided should  
import into LyX just fine, then you could continue editing in that.

Here's a tutorial which should be of help:
