When opening a word file I get ` file already open ` or ` cannot have two files of same name `. on cancelling diag box everything appears to work OK. Is this a quirk of winxp perhaps ? or me ?

Close Word and then using Start > Search locate a file called Normal.dot and delete it.

Start Word and seeif that fixes it.

Thanks bremner, I didn`t think of that. I changed normal.dot a while ago in order to use my own page settings and I did not think it would affect as it did, there you go . . .Dennis.
