I have somehow saved a block of text to my normal.dot template in Word, and now, every time I start up, there it is. Whenever I try to delete the text so that I can start with a blank document, I get the message that normal.dot is in use, and therefore cannot be changed. Is there any way I can fix this without removing Word completely and reinstalling? (I don't even know if that will do the job!) Thanks for any help.
