I have a Dell Inspiron laptop running Win7, FF and Microsoft Essentials. The problem I've been having for some months is that when I open a Word doc that I've saved it will open a blank page first. This isn't, I'm sure, serious, but it is darned annoying having to close two of them. I might add that this usually happens only when I first open a document after boot up. If I open a saved doc any time after it doesn't happen, well rarely anyway. At first I found that some of my docs had been saved (somehow) as Macro Enabled. I changed them all and the problem cleared but only temporarily. I've compared Word Options in both screens when they open and they all seem to be the same. Now since I'm a writer and am frequently creating and saving Word docs I really would like to knock this on the head. I did find an old thread here and tried the remedy but without success. Can anyone help - pleeease?
