office 2003 location windows 7

Specs: Windows 7
When I open a new document in word 2003, it doesn't open using the template I have looked in the template location, and it is there. I opened it and then saved it again, but word 2003 still doesn't bring it up when I start a new document. I just got Windows 7 64bit. Can anyone advise me?

I guess you didn't read the whole email. I KNOW where is located. But Word 2003 isn't using it when it opens a new blank document.
What I need to know is why that is happening and what I can do to make it work the way it's supposed to.

But Word 2003 isn't using it when it opens a new blank document.

How do you know it is not using a file?

If Word is opening normally, then it is using a file.
The location of the file that Word is using can be found by opening Word,
File locations tab.
Choose User templates.
The location is in the lower area of the window under Folder name.

Be aware that the file is a hidden system file and may not show up when you do a search for it. 
If you are unable to find it,
Go to My Computer
Click the Tools menu
Choose Folder Options. 
Click on the View Tab
Put a check where it says, "Show hidden files and folders"
and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"
and "Hide protected operating system files".

Word is using a file, obviously. It's just not the file that I had altered and saved in the templates folder. I've already made the changes so I can view hidden files and see file extensions. Something odd is going on tho - when I try to access the documents and settings folder, it's locked and denies me access. Yet there is another doc and set folder than I CAN access. Got a tech coming over on Monday so maybe he can figure this out.
