Can't delete text in Word by hightlighting and hitting space bar!

I used to be able to type in Word, and delete text by simply hightlighting
what I wanted to delete, and hit the space bar. With Windows XP and new
computer I cannot do this, but must either hit DEL or backspace over the
stuff I want to delete. Does anyone know what to set in Word so that HITTING
THE SPACE BAR WILL DELETE HIGHTLIGHTED MATERIAL?? This is driving me crazy'
I've used this option for years and now it wont' work.
