when typing a word document some times a happy face pops up and then you have to backspace to get rid of it. this is very annoying. example: when i type "(installs on C:)" a happy face pops up the instant that i type the second parenthesis and then i have to backspace to get rid of the happy face. does anybody know how to stop this?

Simple. Click the orb, then choose "Word Options" at the bottom.

Click "Proofing", then click "Auto Correct Options".

Now highlight the offending smiley and click "Delete".

You can also go in and make a bunch of great changes in this area. For some reason, my left pinkie finger is way faster than my right pointer finger, so words with "ha" (have, has, had, etc.) usually come out "ah" (ahve, ahs, ahd) as I type. I've asked Word to fix that and it does.

Plus you can easily assign three keystrokes as anything you want. For example, I could ask Word to type "The How-To Geek Daily Email Newsletter" every time I type "htg".

that's a cool trick, i didn't know that, another addition to my geek library

in case you're wondering where the smiley is coming from, it's from the ":)" in the line that you typed, on the other hand, in case you ever type ":(" it will produce a sad face.
