Using Microsoft Word 2010, when I print the document the text is overlapping but on the print preview it looks fine. Basically I wrote the document, click print, and it prints the text overlapping each other and only a few word do this. It also prints an extra page with some info that I did not command to print.

It sounds like you may have to reinstall the printer driver.

If your printer is on a network, installing Office on the print server might resolve this issue. It is actually the font installation on the print server that does the trick.
Hope that helps

If you need a quick workaround you could use the built-in converter to create a PDF - that should print it the way you intend.

If the PDF ends up looking odd then trouble shooting probably goes down a different path...

Cheers,
