I am running Windows XP professional and Office 2003. The default margin setting for page set up in Word is Top and Left margins 2 cm. Bottom 14.47 and Right 10.84. I have deleted template, uninstalled Office 2003 and reinstalled it and the same problem comes up. I cannot get the margins to change and hold the changed margins. Please help.

Margin settings are definitely stored in but there could be more than one instance of it on your PC. You should do a search and delete all instances that are found.
The default location for on Win XP is C:\Documents and Settings\"Your Username"\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates
Reinstalling the program doesn't help because isn't overwritten.

Open Set up your new margins then save as template this should remember your margins.

and I presume it's the same in 2003...

File>Page setup

Choose your settings, then at the bottom left of the dialogue box is a button, "Make Default"

Clicking this brings up a confirmation box asking if you want to make the settings the default in "" Say yes and voila!

I hope this helps.
