Could anybody explain to me, please, why additional icons appear on my desktop after opening a Word document? The first one, with ~$.doc shows up after clicking the main document to open it and after that, every time when I add something to the document and click SAVE, new icon shows up on my desktop. When I open the ~$.doc, it opens with the exact text I wrote but after a few seconds changes its format. This time instead of my text I have my name in it although I didn't include my name in the text I had written, and mostly boxes. The next icons have different appearance, they are, seems to me, the TEMP files, but the problem I am having is that after a while I have TWENTY of them. They show up every-time I click SAVE.
When I close the document, all of the icons disappear. Until next opening.
I have removed the WORD from my computer and reinstalled it but it didn't help.
Thank you for your time.

Its less probably less confusing if you dont post in multiple forums, this question has been responded to in the Business Applications forum.
