Zipped Files copied for all of my documents

Can anybody tell me why all of the files in most of my folders for "My Documents" have been duplicated with compressed (zipped) files. I don't recall ever doing it and really don't need them. Is there a setting somewhere that can stop it happening again and also is there a way to delete the zipped files without having to do each one individually. I have MS Office 2003 installed on Windows XP.

Don`t know how it happened but deleting them is easy enough. Go into Windows Explorer (Windows Key + E Key) In the left hand pane click on My Documents. In the right click on the column header "Type" and this will put all the zip files together. Now either click once on the first and holding the shift key click once on the last - this will select them all. Shift + Delete Key will delete them permanently. If you want to select the files individually hold the Ctrl key and click on the files to select specific one`s.
