So, I need your help.

My wife got on Word and tried to print an envelope.
Some how she screwed up the default settings, and every time
that I open a new document, the envelope settings come up with the
return address filled in and the mailing address filled in. The
size, layout, etc... is all screwed up. I think word itself is
fine but the "new document" file is messed up.

Can somebody tell me how to return word to its default settings
completely without removing/re-installing the software?

Thanks in advance

Just to clarify that last part, when you open a new document this happens, or when you try to print?

Find and delete the default template(s) "normal.dot" to reset all defaults for new documents.

Enable the viewing of hidden and system files, and do not have word open.
