That sounds like an old Word macro virus that made the
rounds back in 1995-6 or so. If I recall, the virus did
nothing but mess with your Word docs - it had no other
malicious payload. And I seem to remember that it was spread
by double-clicking on a document to open it.

Do you have anti-virus installed? Where did the file come

So, open the file and look for any macros and delete them.
Also, look at what templates are attached and remove them.
After that's done, Maggie the doc (copy everything except
the final paragraph mark into a new doc) and save the new doc.
