MS Word6 save change problem

At our lab, there seems to be a problem that after people modify a Word document, they can't save changes. Sometimes they can't even save it under another filename on the same floppy disk. I heard this is a virus, and some say this is a setting problem, anyone knows how to solve this problem? Thanks!

This sounds very much like the infamous Word 6 template virus. You can read more information on it at

http://www.dgl.com/dglinfo/dg961118.html

and you can download a copy of a program to cure it (and other macro viruses) at

http://www.antivirus.com/ 

or from

http://coopext.cahe.wsu.edu/~support/

You should get rid of it as soon as you can, because it can end up doing some damage to your hard drive and its contents.


Cheers,

Sorry for the mistake.
