Please close all Word Documents before shutting down

  1. Hi Can anyone help, when closing the computer we are getting the following message:

    Please close all Word Documents before shutting down (click OK)

    We didn’t have any word documents open but went into word and did File Exit; this took us to the last email we replied to, which I then had to close before shutting down .

    This has started since we set up a signature for replies and only happens if we have replied to a message that day.

    Any help would be great!

    Your signature file is most likely a Word-document.
    OE or Outlook opens that Word-doc in the background.
    Switch that 'signature' over to text-only within OE/Outlook Options.
    Or get a better email-program.

    use openoffice.org --- you won't have that issue (and it's free)

    Just fill out the text-box, and get rid of the attached signature file.
