    Perhaps the file was saved as a .dot extension. If you rename the file to a .doc extension the problem should go away.
    Remember to make changes in a way that can be undone or backups.

    And it that doesn't work, DELETE your normal.dot file

    This is the blank template everyone sees when opening Word.

    You may have to do it in Safe Mode is normal mode doesn't allow you...
