    When I open up MS Word, it always goes to the Document Recovery window, even on documents that I know to be not corrupt. How can I fix this?

    What version of Word are you using? 2003? 2007?

    In general, however, I think if you run through the list of documents in the recovery window and save them all (even if you don't need them - just to get them out of the memory) - you can then delete the ones you don't want.
    Then, with all Office programs closed, clean your system of tmp files of various sorts (I would suggest you get and use CCleaner
    http://www.ccleaner.com/
    and run it) in order to do this.
