    Hi,
    An elderly friend just had her system updated to WORD 2003. Now, every time
    she brings up a new document, or tries to edit one, a black bar appears as
    soon as she types a letter. I checked to make sure shading was off.... any
    ideas? (Due to poor eyesight, she has everything on an extremely large
    font).
    Could the high-lighting feature do this? (I went into shading to make sure
    the color was set to white).

    Thanks for any help!

  2. Had same problem with Word XP on an older PC. Was OK when removed and WOrd
    97 or Word 2000 installed.
