Default highlighting a text and typing does not delete it, how do i fix it

I just recently installed Microsoft 2003, but when I highlight a text and
begin to type over it, the highlighted text does not delete and it's annoying
me that I have to press the delete button every time instead of being able to
highlight and press the backspace.

This can also be caused by having WordPerfect settings on. See:
