Default MS Word document keeps switching to "Final" rather than "Final: Show Markup"

Please help! I'm trying to edit a rather large document and it keeps hiding the tracked changes and comments on me, practically every 1-2 minutes! I've seen posts about people having the opposite problem (jumping to showing the markup when they don't want to see it). But I NEED to see the markup. It's making editing my document take twice as long as it should because every time it switches to "final" it changes the page length too and takes me to a completely different spot in the document! Please, please help!

This is certainly strange. First of all, make sure that the "Make hidden
markup visible when opening or saving" option at File tab | Options | Trust
Center | Trust Center Settings | Privacy Options is selected. (In Word 2007,
click the Office button, and then click Word Options, to see the Options
dialog box.)

Hello,
I have this same problem. After a few minutes in Final Showing Markup the document just switches to Final and turns on the reviewing pane. I am very familiar with the Track Changes feature, and have checked the setting that Stefan suggests.
Thank you,
Nancy

This problem could be caused by a poorly designed add-in. In the KB article
at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921541/en-us, take a look at the sections
that refer to Startup and COM add-ins.

Most likely, a poorly designed add-in of some sort is causing this problem.
See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921541/en-us (How to troubleshoot
problems that occur when you start or use Word), in particular the sections
that refer to COM and Startup add-ins.
