    Every time one of my users double-clicks on a Word document from explorer Word opens it, but instead of showing the correct file name at the top it shows Document1(2,3,4,etc...depending on how many she's opened). I messed around with her file associations a couple weeks ago, but clicked on Set Default to set it back. Is there something else I did wrong? Or do I need to reinstall Office?

    I think that if the "documents" she is trying to open in Explorer are templates, you will get the results you are. The idea being that you would save your template under another name..... Does the same thing happen when the user Opens the file in Word?
