MS Word problem

A couple days ago I wrote a letter in Word, printed it and exited Word without saving the file.
Today I opened Word from the Taskbar and the letter was presented undemanded. I cannot get rid of it! The top screen banner says ' Document1 - Microsoft Word'. I certainly do not have a file saved as this.
I've done System Restore; I've uninstalled Office and reinstalled it. No change, Word keeps opening with that unwanted document.

What to do next?

Office version is 2000 running on Win XP/SP3.

Document1 is the default document that opens when ever you open word.

Word is set to auto save any document you write therefore if you did not rename the document it will have auto saved as Document1.

Delete document1 from your PC. word will recreate a new document1 when you re open it.

Thanks Fruit Bat. Been searching, no Document1.* or Doc1.* evident. Been thinking it may be a corrupt 'normal' template. When I get back to my problem PC I'll try and replace the file...
