Every time I exit MS Word (since 12/06/04) I keep getting the following meassage:
This file in use by other application.
C:\Documents and settings\...\Normal.dot
When I click on OK the Save as Template box appears. I then Click cancel again Word is still there I then click exit & the following message appears:
Changes have been made that affect the global template, Normal.Do you want to save those changes?
This is a real pain...
Any advice would be extremely welcome

I've had this problem in Word with Win2k. It seems to crop up twice a year like clockwork! Try navigating to the folder where the normal.dot file resides and deleting it. A new one gets created when you open up word again. Unless you have made significant changes to word (ie. changing the language, default fonts etc) you shouldn't notice any changes.

Good advice. To get rid of the second message go to TOOLS>OPTIONS>SAVE TAB and untick "prompt to save normal template"
