Sounds like life has been a bit busy. Glad that you are doing better.

Let's try resetting the folder options:
(You might want to watch these videos in the full screen mode and at 720p.)
That should hide them from your view and searches.
It appears that your MS Word is ending abnormally, thus leaving temp files behind:
If you wish to remove the temp files:
Unhide them as shown in the video above.
Make a folder on your desktop named "delete-me".
Close MS Word. CUT
the files that start with a tilde (~) from the folders where you see them. PASTE
those files into the folder on your desktop named "delete-me". KEEP
them around for a few months.
(to make sure that you did not accidentally move a file that was not a temp file) DELETE
the folder sometime this summer :-)
