Word recreates if it discovers it missing.

I thought you could clean up list templates by:

1. Format > Bullets and Numbering...
2. Click Reset.

This is supposed to revert all numbering and lists to
the original seven that come with Word. Of course, you
won't like this if you've created your own list

Most Word experts (I am NOT one) advise using fields
instead of list numbering because it is so unstable in
Word, and your lists will display differently on
different computers. If you don't distribute Word
docs, this latter is not a problem - and why I stick
with *only* Word's built-in list styles when I must
work in Word.

Good luck
