Seems to me like a virus problem. Use an up-to-date antivirus to scan for any viruses, particularly macro viruses that affect word files.
Hope this helps.

You'd need to be more specific in your question, describe what happens.

ex. When I first save a document as .doc using wordpad it gets a 20 kb footprint after opening it in Word and saving file size grows to 1.2 mb.

One thing that I know of that will significantly increase .doc's is imbedded graphics. For some reason the total of the original .doc without graphic and graphic on it's own will be lower than the resulting file.

Again be more specific where do you see the file size increase, in explorer?

This sounds like a virus. Make sure you run a full scan with the latest virus updates.
