When opening Office 2007 applications, my default display settings change

I have loaded all the new drivers for an NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nforce 430, thinking this may take care of the issue.  I have also downloaded all Office updates in case this was the solution to the issue.  The screen resolution is currently set to 1280x960 and every application runs just fine.  However, any Office 2007 application I open changes my default resolution to a much smaller resolution (900x600).  So, I will go back to my desktop (keeping the application open) and change my resolution back to my usual default.  However, when I open an additional Office application, the resolution goes back to (900x600).  Can anyone shed any light on this situation.  Nothing I have read so far explains this problem.

Check the 'Properties' dialog for the applications and/or the shortcuts that
launch them. Click the 'Compatibility' tab & make sure that all check-boxes
are CLEARED. Especially  "Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution" might have
somehow been activated.
