I have had this problem for several years now. Ever since I installed Widows XP.

Every time I open a document I get the same message:

C:\...\desktop\name of my document.doc is being used by my name. Do you want to make a copy?

Then I have 2 choices, OK or cancel. When I click on either one the document will finally display.

There are no other users on this computer. it's not a major problem. Just a nuisance. But does any one know why this might be happening? And how to fix it maybe?

I have attached a picture of the error box. Yes, I chose as my registerd name Dell Client.

Thanks Louis for the link. This seems like it might be the answer. I just tried the repair. Didn't even have to insert the CD. I just typed winword /r, and it was fixed instantly. And here I have been putting up with this for over a year. Because I assumed getting an answer for such a simple problem might not be that simple. But you people seem to know everything, or at least know where to get the answer. That is just AW-SAM.
