When I open a word doc everything is normal. But when i open a word doc that says audit program all fonts except the header are italized and does not allow me to change the fonts back to regular.
I do not know what could cause this problem... Any help with this would be appreciated.

thanks

No the Document is not protected. Anyone can make changes to the document. I emailed myself the document and opened it on another computer. The document works fine on the other computer.
i can remove Italic or I can add Italic. only on that spacific laptop does this problem happen. thats what so weird about it. any thing else you can think of would be appreciated thanks.

You can try to copy the text and the paste it using the 'Paste Special' option on the 'Edit' menu, select the
'Unformatted text' and it would remove all formatting

Just my luck. the user i was fixing this problem for has left. Not sure when i will be able to go test out those instructions on that laptop again, how long can i keep this string open until it is automatically closed? I would just give u the points for helping but if i might need to come back to this again. not sure what to do.

I have since upgraded the end users to a new laptop which does not resolve the problem on the old laptop but alleviates the problem for that user. This question can be closed.
