I opened a saved word document from a USB stick today on my work computer and it looks like the attached file.
The large apple appears on every 10-20th file I open. Always an apple. It won't go away whatever I do. Can't select it, right click, left click, nothing. The text is underneath, but when I highlight and copy anything it to another file, the apple comes too. (Can copy to a plain text file OK, though - losing all formatting).
It's only word files. 2 other people in the office also found some apples, but only on files I've written. No viruses detected either at work or at home and virus check up to date both places. No apples at home. Originals of the files, written at home, are apple-free.
Has anyone ever heard of this? Is it a virus? Some sort of hidden Easter Egg within Word? Ideas welcomed!
(My normal method of googling for solutions fails due to searching for anything involving apples brings up many links to a certain computer company but not a lot else...)
