    REcently my MSword program (Office Home & student 2007) started auto copying
    docs when I deleted them. I now have hundreds of copies of docs I don't want.
    Dont know how it happened & am lost for a solution to stop it. Help.

    What's your operating system, and how are you deleting the files? (through
    Word or through Windows Explorer, or...?)

    after selecting the file to delete are you pressing the delete key? Or
    are you inadvertently dragging and dropping them with the mouse which
    results in the copy.
