I'm not sure whether I should post this in the XP forum, Word Forum or elsewhere - but I never experienced this annoyance with Windows 98 so it's ended up here. I'm using Word 97 and when I double-click on a word document to open it I always get the message "[File name] is being used by Chris, Do you want to make a copy? OK Cancel? If I select OK I get the file name in the word title bar with the word copy in brackets after the name. If I select cancel I just get the original file. My questions - why does this happen and how can I stop it? There are no other user accounts set up on the machine (excluding guest). As far as I know I am Chris so why does Windows tell me I'm already using the file when I've only just opened i? Moreover, if I open up Word first and then open a file I don't get any messages. But if Word isn't running then I do get the message. Is this a bug or do I need to adjust my settings?
Thanks in advance,
