Make sure no office programs are running.
Do a search for and delete it.
Don't worry, this is a file that is automatically created by office if it is not present.
Corruption of this file can cause problems like this.
If you are worried about deleting it, you can rename it to something like normal.old

    I am trying to copy an invoice that is emailed to me weekly. When I try to save it to my files it looks nothing like their copy. What should I do?


    It depends on what type of file they have sent to you and what program you are opening it up with.

    For example, if they have sent you a file that was created in Microsoft Office 2007 (files will end in xlsx for excel or docx for Word), you need to open up in that version of Office or have a compatibility pack installed. Alternatively, you can ask the sender to save the file as an 97-2003 document and resend it to you.

    Hope that helps
