You have gotten the single paragraph in the Normal.dot template (the basis for
blank documents) set to center alignment. To fix the problem:

- Open the Normal.dot template as described in the section "The simplest fix:
cleaning up the Normal template" at
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/...ocNotBlank.htm.

- Change the paragraph alignment to left-aligned by clicking the button on the
toolbar or by going through the Format Paragraph dialog.

- If the Undo button on the toolbar is grayed out, you'll have to make sure that
Word "knows" that it has to save the template. To do that, type a space
character and then backspace to delete it.

- Save and close the template.
