It's puzzling that it affects only new files. Did you change anything recently? Install any new software or fonts?
Do these files have anyting in common, like an odd font you don't use all the time?
It is puzzling indeed. And quite a desaster for me, since I have a deadline to meet.
No changes, no new installations (not known, maybe updates in the background??).
InDesign started crashing in the middle of the workprocess. Since then the problem persists.
When I open an old file and start working on it, InDesign also crashes after a while during the workprocess.
So I can't work, I can't save files ... booo!
This happened with an update of a document that I work on all the time, a monthly magazine.
Maybe it is a Windows problem, although it is strange that all other programs work fine. (I use Windows XP)

OK, so it isn't just new files. have you tried trashing the prefs? see Replace Your Preferences
And if you have a font manager, disable or remove the autoactivation plugin (and any other third party plugins) as a test.
Also worth troubleshooting the fonts -- you never know. See Troubleshoot font problems | Windows
Thank you for your efforts to help!
It turned out that the file I worked with was damaged. I've used it for updates, that's why new saved files didn't work ...
Had to start over with an older file, but everything works fine now.
