Did you try manually locating and deleting the .asd file?

If you haven't set the location of the autorecover files in Word, then they are in the default location (which is your temp folder). To get there hit Start->Run and type %TEMP%
Then find the .asd files and delete them.

would not have thought to look in the folders for .asd  
found a few of them... i will hold the question open for a short while, and report back.

can i view the recovery pain intentionally.   it seems to come upo when it wants.

Hi Intelogent,

This is very simple ,pls do the following steps:

// Go to Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Application Recovery.
// In the Application list, click the program or document that is not responding.
** Do one of the following:
// To attempt to recover the files you were working on, click Recover Application or Restart Application.
// If you just want to close the program, and lose recent changes to the files, click End Application.

GL,
Wellous

I don't understand what your post means. It is still popping up but with no files? You can of course make it pop us at will. But it shouldn't pop up if there are no files.

no what i mean.. is akin to having word start, with no document loaded...

the recovery pain showed itself at random times ( or i just do not understand when it was suppose to appear ).
so i thought if i  started the program, or applet, i could confirm that it would start with no " documents to be recovered " 

see my point.

and , please when does the revoery pain appear?

The recovery pane appears when Word thinks there are documents to recover. Usually after a crash, but not always.
