How do I solve Microsoft layout issue?

Multiple people are opening the same word document however 1 PC was displaying the document different to all the rest. We have checked margins, page setup, layout ect..... They are all using the same version of Office (2010) and it displays fine on 2/3 other PCs no problem. If you re-install Office this fixes the issue however the client has now said this has happened on another machine.

Below is a screenshot of how it normally opens:
How the file looks normally
Below is a screenshot of how it opens on the problem PC:

Any suggestions on why this is happening would be much appreciated.

Thanks

It could be a matter of different settings within office (or windows) on different machines

The Windows 7 migration tool might help
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg617942.aspx

Or perhaps the built-in "easy transfer"
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/transferring-files-settings-faq#1TC=windows-7

or use this commercial tool

All the client PCs are using the same version of office (Office 2010) and the same version of Windows (Windows XP SP3)

As far as I can tell from them links this should mean they should open the same, using the same settings?
