To prevent Word from auto-completing these symbols, click on "File" and select "Options".

Select "Proofing" on the left and click the "AutoCorrect Options" button.

Click to select the symbols you don't like, and click the "Delete" button. Click "OK" to close that dialog and "OK" again in Options to return to Word.
You can always re-add them later.
Tip: to add other symbols, select the Ribbon's "Insert" tab, and click on "Symbol" (right).
