Default margins can't change

Help!!! My word 2002 won't allow me to change any margins. I keep getting a
message from office helper saying "Increasing right margin causes last column
to become too narrow in some sections having unevenly spaced columns". This
message is shown on any document. Have tried reinstalling the program, but
nothing changes.

Go to Format | Columns and click the One box, even if it is already
selected. Make sure that this results in the "Equal column width" box being
checked, then OK out. If this solves the problem, open Normal.dot and do the
same thing; for instructions, see
