Default cursor won't move, text types in same place

When I open a new document in MS Word and begin typing, the cursor doesn't
advance and the letters all type over one another. I think it has to do with
Normal.dot file but not sure wondering if anyone has see this happen before.

This might also be a display issue, but you can test by starting Word with
the /a switch as described at

I encountered this as a Word document attachment received today, but some
lines were OK and some had this problem. The problem continued when I tried
to paste it into a new document and then when I tried to create a new
document. My old saved documents are not affected. I clicked link to below
suggestion and I did not understand what to do. Thanks! Help!

Hi ?B?SmltIFNpZWdlbA==?=,

document. My old saved documents are not affected. I clicked link to below

Which version of Word do you have?
