Hidden image in word document

By mfawdry ·
I am running Microsoft word 2002 on Vista OS. I inserted a clipart picture in a booklet I am working on, which has somehow replicated itself on another page. This is only visible when printed off and does not show in the normal print preview pane - it does however show in the advanced print preview associated with my printer. All efforts to remove this nuisance have failed. It does not show in any form in view format and deleting the page it is on and beyong simply shifts it to another page in the document. I have played around with this for days to no avail and time is running out to get this work to the printer. has anyone else experienced this and does anyone have a solution please?

MS Word may have been corrupted.
Do a search for and rename the file. Restart Word and a new file will be created. is located in C:\Documents and Settings\"Username"\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates folder. It is a hidden file, so you will have to unhide hidden files. In Explorer go to the Menu and select Tools, Folders Options, View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Repair MS Word. With Word open, go to Help, Detect and Repair.

If that dosn't work, go to Add and Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Remove. A menu will pop up allowing you to choose repair or reinstall. Try a Repair.

Let us know how you get on.
