Default Word always asks if I want to save

I'm using Office 2007 & XP SP3. Word asks if I want to save changes even if
I have not made any changes. For instance, when I open a document and
immediatly close it I still get the Do You Want to Save the Changes dialog
box.

I've tried performing a repair on Office 2007 and the behavior remains.
This does not happen with other Office apps (e.g Excel).

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you checked to see if there are any auto-update fields (e.g. current
date)? Everytime you open the file those will update and Word will think the
file has changed.

I have. I can create a new document with a single sentance, save it and
close it. When I re-open it and immediately close it I get the Do You Want
to Save the Changes dialog box.
