I just started having a similar issue. When I open Word I see Document 3, Document 2, and finally Document 1 flash quickly and the 2nd and 3rd documents (and they are named this) go away leaving just Document 1 open. When I compose an email I see a screen flash and shut as well but it's so fast I can't tell what it's really doing. This just started happening and I also am at a loss as to how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

Your issue sounds more like an infection. I'm going to split your post from this topic to its own topic and will move it to the Am I Infected forum.

I will title it: Fast window flashing when opening Word or e-mail.
