When I am in a document in Word 2010 and have Track Changes turned on, the change tracking options is set to show deletions as Strikethrough, but when I select a word and delete it, after turning on Track Changes, the word deletes instead of showing as a strikethrough.

On the review tab what is your tracking option set to? Is it "Final" or "Final Showing Markup".

Change it to "Final Showing Markup" if not already set. Also check your settings under "Show Markup"

The Expert's answer got me 2/3 of the way there. I also needed to go into Show Markup, Balloons, and Show Revisions Inline rather than the default Show Revisions in Balloons, but this certainly pointed me in the right direction and got me most of the way there.
