Word Options>Advance>Show document content>show field codes instead of content!

Try to look into the Normal.dot template or replace it from other working system.

The normal template (Notmal.dotx or Normal.dotm) is found at the 'User templates' location:-

Word Options>Advanced>File Locations...

Open it, add a field (e.g.) Date, and use the Alt+F9 toggle until the Date is displayed. Delete the field and save the template.
