Hello my office PC is Win 98, P-III. Most of our office works involves working with MS-word and doing miscellaneous secretariat work.
For the last one month, I am facing some very serious troubles working with MS-Word on my computer. As and when I create a MS-word file and save it, one more copy of it gets created automatically in the folder. Like this
As you can see one copy if Dim and another is normal.
Then after creating the file for the first time, whenever I reopen this file inside the MS-word, the file open with some strange illegible characters. Here is a screenshot :
The peculiar thing is that whenever I open the same file through Window Explorer (i.e. by opening the relevant folder and double clicking on the file icon), the file opens normally :
Here is the same file when opens through the explorer
Since my official duties requires working on MS-word throughout the day, the inability to open the files through inside the MS-word itself and every time opening it through explorer is seriously affecting my work.
The another problem is copying this files to another computer. When I copy some of my word files in a floppy and transfer them to another computer, these files automatically get deleted on the new computer. As a result, I am not able to transfer my word files to a new computer which is also a very serious problem.
Kindly help me what should I do ?
