    should be able to open up a document, make it completely blank and then save that as normal.doc in the templates folder...

    Do a wildcard search on "normal.do?"

    When you find the bugger, delete it... worst case scenario, PM me with your email addy and I'll send you mine lol

    Now you should be able to change the margins, find normal.dot and save it

    Also, check your paper settings (ensure A4, not legal or letter!)
