Duplicated word documents in zip files

Can anybody tell me why I have most of my word files showing as being duplicated with zip files when I search for a document and show "All files" I have deleted most of the zip files one at a time but can't understand how they got there or if there is an easier way to remove them. I don't need them and they must be taking up a lot of space with all of my documents being unnecessarily duplicated, even if they are zip files. I did have them all duplicated into "winrar" files before. I don't know how that happened either.

I assume you are using WORD
Go to TOOLS, OPTIONS, SAVE and untick the 'Always create a backup option'.

Ooops, sorry about the duplication of the posting. I could blame my PC, but.....
Thanks Terry, I went to do what you said, but, the option wasn't ticked in any case. I did, however, untick the box marked: Allow background saves" so whether or not that will do it remains to be seen.
