Word & carriage return symbol

By Ray F ·
I can't remove the cairrage return symbol by clicking off the Show/Hide button from the standard toolbar. I also cannot edit, rename or delete the Normal.Dot template. This is a MSOffice 2K Pro. installation. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but this didn't fix the problem. Also the old user's name appears as trhe registered user even though I changed that on the reinstall. Any suggestions short of formatting the hard drive and reinstalling Win98 etc?

Close Word and search for and delete any files that start with a tilde ?~? the combination ~*.* usually finds them.
Now search for any files and delete them. There should be only one. Word will create a new one when it restarts.
