"Remove personal information from document properties on save"rechecks itself

using office 2007 on windows xp

I've cleared the "Remove personal information from document properties
on save" from the Trust Center. However, when I start a new file, that
setting becomes active again. How can I configure the setting so that
the checkmark stays off for all documents?

This is a problem because we use track changes and this setting
identifies my changes as being generic Author changes upon each save.
Is there a way to disable this permanently from the application itself
or is this something that's handled at the file level?

I think that this might be related to the template itself.

The "Remove personal information..." setting was checked in the
template and even when I unchecked it in my version of Word 2007, it
rechecked whenever I used that template or files based on it.

Once I cleared it from the originating template, then the "Remove
personal information" box stayed unchecked.
