Close All office documents and Delete any normal.dot file you find. When you open word, it will create a new blank template.

Also do a search for *.dot you will find another one similar ~normal.dot (Something close)... Remove that also.

In Windows Explorer go to View>File types and check to display all files.
This can sometimes help to locate Normal.dot. You can then rename it to perserve any macros it may contain or just delete it.
