Track Changes in Word 2007 Do Not Turn Off

I received a file from a colleague with track changes. I have accepted the
changes and there are no more visible changes in the document, yet when I
open the document it opens in Track Changes. What can be done to correct
this problem?

Accepting all changes does not turn off Track Changes. On the Review tab, in
the Tracking group, click the Track Changes button and click Track Changes to
turn it off.

If you work often with documents with tracked changes, you might want to
turn on the display in the status bar (right click in the status bar and
click Track Changes); the display will indicate whether Track Changes are on
or off.

I have done all of that but still no luck. Every time I open the document it
automatically opens in the track changes mode on. For me it is not a problem
b/c I can turn it off when needed, but I am planning on sending it to other
colleagues and don't want track changes to be on when they open the document.

Any suggestions are welcome. I am beginning to think this is a bug.
Frustrating!

Help!

Sorry I could not help. So long as you (1) accepted all changes, (2) turned
tracked changes off, (3) saved the document and (4) opened the document in
that order, tracked changes should be turned off.

By default, if you turn tracked changes off without accepting all the
changes, save the document and then reopen it, tracked changes will be turned
on and all the tracked changes will be visible. This provides very important
protection against sending a document containing tracked changes to someone
you did not want to see the changes

Let us know if you find an answer.
