Help Micro. word 2000 question

Specs: Windows Vista
I wrote a letter in Word 2000, and it stuck! I mean, whenever I open the program, or ask for a new or blank page, this document appears. Any thoughts? Should I uninstall the program, and if so, where can I get another disck to reinstall? Also, I scanned the program and entier computer for malicious spyware, and nothing.
THanks so much in advance!

Have you somehow saved the document as a "default"?

Open the document and save it as something else. Then reopen it, delete everything and save it as is. See if that doesn't at least clear what's being brought up when you start a new document.

Do you know the name of the document and if so have you searched for it so that you can delete it from your file system?

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome

Do a search for a file called "normal.dot" delete all instances of it. It will rebuild itself the next time you launch Word.

THANK YOU! I replied already but I dont think it was posted. So, here it is: I could not FIND the stupid file to delete it. Ran a search about 100 times. Looked manually. Nothing. I found it in the Word 2000 files, but could not delete it using Word 2000, which it had affected. BUT, since Word 2007 was installed, I went to it, and there it was. So, I deleted it using that program, and it worked!
Thanks to everyone who helped. I hope this helps someone else!

Take care
