    Delete command in status bar (Word XP)

    When I highlight a group of words and hit the delete key, I get "Delete block Yes/No?" in the status bar. I'm going nuts! How do I turn that off and get it to just delete the block? I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out.

    I just flattened my machine and reinstalled Office, which is when this happened.

    Thanks.

    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the General tab.
    Clear the two check boxes related to WordPerfect: "Help for WordPerfect users" and "Navigation keys for WordPerfect users".
