I have a user who every now and then gets this following error message when she tries to close Word:

the action can't be completed because the file is open in microsoft word autorecovery save of normal.as$

I am unable to find anything on the web on this, hoping someone here knows that this is and how can I prevent this from occuring without disabling autorecovery
