    Tools > Options > "Error Checking" Tab - there are several options that can be unchecked. I think this does it.

    Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Smart Tags (tab)

    uncheck "Label data with Smart tags"

    <hr>...options appears(autofill) ...<hr>
    Tools>Options>Edit tab...
    Uncheck "Show Paste Options Buttons" will take care of the problem you described.

    Also uncheck "Show Insert Options Buttons" if that action button bothers you.
