• Word opens on its own when computer starts

    I have an Acer Aspire Z24 running Windows 10 and recently, when I start up and log in, one or two blank Microsoft Word documents appear on the screen just as if I had started the Word app. The only way I have found to prevent this from happening is to use the task manager to “end task” on Microsoft Word before shutting down.

    I’m not a computer whiz, so I’m not familiar with the registry. The best I could do was to check the Startup menu in Norton to make sure Word was not on the list.

    Hopefully, this is not an indication that something is accessing my documents after I turn the computer off. The blank documents aren’t associated with any file.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
