Hi I dont use word but it sounds like you have set the letter as your default,

when it shows again clear the letter and then save it again as default then it should come back as a clean sheet,

It sounds like you may have inadvertantly saved the letter as a .dot file (template) instead of a .doc. You can safely delete the normal.dot template or modify and save it to your prefered format. If you delete the template, word automatically re-creates a new template when you re-start MS Word.

Search for normal.dot and delete it or modify it with your desired format and save.

I suggest VoG™ has the right link - crossed post.
