Default Windword.exe process in Task Mangaer Question

When Word is first opened, Winword.exe process runs and you can see it in
Task Manager. When Word is shutdown, Winword.exe should be released (or
shutdown) as well.
This process is not always consistently shutdown. Sometimes Winword.exe
stays running and can be seen in Task Manager eventhough Word has been
shutdown. Does anybody know why and what I can do to make sure the process is
shutdown when the application is shutdown?

Default Windword.exe process in Task Mangaer Question

If you have Office 2003 or earlier, and if you've chosen to use Word as the
message editor for Outlook, then the WinWord.exe process will be running as
long as Outlook is up. You would have to close Outlook, or choose to use the
built-in editor instead of Word.

In Office 2007, this is no longer true, as the message editor is a DLL that
runs in Outlook's process and doesn't appear separately in the process list.

Thanks for the response.
I am using Office 2003 and it just so happens that Outlook is/was opened.
How can I check to see if Outlook is setup to use Word as its selected editor
and how do I change it?
