Every time I open Microsoft Excel or Word a message appears saying that a document with the same name is already open although there isn’t. It will allow me to continue and use the document but is there anyway of stopping this message appear.

When opening Word or Excel it attempts to open "Normal.dot. Do a search for files named Normal.dot and see if you have duplicates in EACH programme. If you have move one copy from each to a safe place, and see if the message disappears. It sounds like they are trying to run two instances of the same file
