Microsoft Word 2003 Page Setup Weird

Hi Experts,

I am having problems with Microsoft Word 2003.  When you open a new document the margins seems to be all over the place.  The page setup is on A4, margins and footer sizes okay and there is no place markers on the ruler.  I am getting a very wide margin on the right hand side.  I have tried looking in the templates folder for normal.dot to delete but can't find one.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Navigate to this path from start > run > regedit

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word

Delete the Word folder.  At next login, Word will rebuild.  Test again.

normal.dot is typically stored here:

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
