    This has just started happening to me. Whenever I have a document open, and select File / Close document word closes out the document and the application also closes.

    Any suggestions?

    I have a Dell with Word 2003 and I've had this problem from the get go, except that I didn't know it was a problem until now. Since my computer was brand new and it was doing that, I figure that's the way it was supposed to be. Well, now I know better, only how do I fix it?

    Mine is in all documents too....

    I will follow this thread with much interest....

    Well, I am glad to see that I'm not the only one having problems with it. Anyone have anymore ideas?

    I have release 11.6113.5703

    and it does not happen to me.
    I thought it was the windows in taskbar settings, but it doesn't seem to matter.
    Also, when I go to Tools-Templates and Addins, I have NO global templates or addins loaded down in the bigger box. Perhaps you do?

    I'm having the same problem, too. I wondered if it was related to the fact that I use Word as my e-mail editor in Outlook -- Word stays "open" there. I also have problem activating Word from my Office task bar when Outlook is open.
