    is it actually saving the the My Documents Folder? Or is it listed on the start> documents menu?

    If listed on the start menu, that's a shortcut. The last 15 are saved a recent shortcuts there.

    If that is not the case and the doc is saved in both locations I am not sure. What version of Word are you using?

    Post back.
    there is a cure all for Word. That's finding Normal.dot and deleting it or renaming it. The next time Word is opened, a new normal.dot will be created. If you have created any Macros and saved them, they will, however, be lost.

    Do you mean that it's saving a backup file? Try Tools-Options, Save tab and make sure "always make backup" isn't checked.
