I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do a search on her hard drive for all instances of normal.dot.  Search hidden files.  Either rename or delete it.  That should do the trick.


At a blank document, go to File, Page Setup.  Select the paper size you want it to be.  Click the DEFAULT button down at the bottom left.

If these ideas don't work, post back and we'll see what we can do.
