After downloading the new Microsoft Edge last night Word went crazy

After downloading the new Microsoft Edge last night. My Microsoft Word went crazy putting dots (.) and arrows throughout all of my documents and I am just in tears trying to repair it. I uninstalled the new Edge, I uninstalled my WORD and reinstalled it and nothing works. My version came with Microsoft Works Suite 2006. Can U help?

    I just told U what happened, I can't type any words without dots/arrows inserting themselves in my document. Each one happens after I hit the space bar.

    Hello,


    This is the issue that is not that commoner reported, so there might be different reasons. If these lines and dots printing too? If not, you should check if the boundaries are turned on. That may be the issue.

    Go to File, then Options and Advanced.
    Look under Show Document Content and uncheck the Show text boundaries.

    Good luck
