Default Track changes

In Word 2007 how can I turn track changes off so that it's off once and for
all? I turned it off, saved and closed the document just to find track
changes on when I reopen the document.

closed it but, when I opened the document (Word 2007) track changes was back
on.

It seems as if the document isn't getting saved. After you've turned off track
changes, modify the document, for example by adding text and deleting it, and
then save. Does that make a difference?

It's also possible the document contains comments that haven't been deleted,
which would cause the Reviewing toolbar (or Review tab in this case) to be
displayed whether Track Changes is on or not.

I did this and it is not making any difference. Every time I open this
particular document track changes is on. This is just so frustrating!!!
Thank you for your suggestions. Guess it's just another cyber gremlin...

FOUND IT!!!
Turn off Track Changes. Select the Office Button, Prepare, Inspect
document, click Inspect button. Once inspection is complete, remove Document
Properties & Personal Information. Save, close document and when reopened,
Track Changes is still OFF... Thank you for your assistance.
