G'Day Alistair,
letters overwrite
You are in Overtype mode - press the INS key (once) to go to
Insert Mode.
the cursor does not move
Please clarify. The Cursor is the pointer controlled by the mouse. The
position where typing/deleting occurs is the Insertion Point.

If the letters are piling up in a jumble, then according to contributor Bob
Buckland: "It's a bug that somehow seems to have Word misreading temporary
files related to the printer currently in use. You can usually 'unscramble'
the display from File=>Print and switch to the printer properties or to
another printer then your normal one, or close Word and delete all files
found on Start=>Search and looking for ~$*.*;*.tmp as the name string then
restarting Word." See also
