my mom had saved an AIM conversation with a friend to microsoft word. and now, whenever word opens, the conversation is there. if you go to new document when word is already open, it still does it. weirdest thing ever. definitely bad news... didnt know if anyone had heard of seen anything like this. she could just reinstall i guess, but im more worried about how/why thats going on lol.

There's a function in AIM to save a conversation to a MS Word document? Or she did a copy and paste?

Sounds like she saved to the default template. Not exactly sure where that is stored (probably depends on your word version as well), used to be a file called 'normal.dot'.
If you google for 'normal.dot' + <your word version> you should probably find out where it lives, just open it like a regular file, remove the text and save it.

Open word and go to tools, opitons, file location (think that is what it is called in the english version) and you can see where the files are stored.
