Office97 fault

  GRFT 13:55 15 Nov 06

Lately when I try to open a saved Word97 document called,say filename.doc I'm greeted with 'Do you wish to revert to the saved filename.doc'? Yes/No. No matter what I choose the filename is changed to ~$filename.doc and Word won't open it.
Somes rebooting fixes the problem but only temporarily. The only sure way is a system restore but again the problem soon returns.
I've used Office97 for many years error-free until now. There are no system changes that I can think of that would cause this.
The program has been uninstalled and reinstalled again to no avail. I'm using XP Home.
Thanks for any suggestions.
