Microsoft Word 2003.
When I open this program I get a page on which to write. However there is an annoying Window on the right-hand side of the page, entitled 'Getting Started'. I go to 'View', 'Toolbars' and uncheck the offending  'Task Pane'. It disappears. However when I close and restart the program it re-appears. How can I eliminate it from the starting screen when I open Word 2003?
