Windows 7: Wierd "script code" in a downloaded .doc file

Win7 Enterprise 64bit
Wierd "script code" in a downloaded .doc file

I am thoroughly stumped on this one. I have a user with a brand new, freshly installed computer running Windows 7 (Prof, 64bit) and Office Pro 2010 (32bit). The computer is connected to a Win2008 Active Directory with roaming profiles.

When the user downloads a report in .doc format on this computer, every table has a very odd bit of what appears to be scripting code of some type. Here is a sample:

Here is the kicker -
  1. if the user goes to another computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there
  2. if another user logs onto HER computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there
which tells me that the problem is NOT in the document itself, nor is there something wrong with the Office install on her computer.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 7 Professional x64, Windows XP x64 SP3

What are the specs of the other machine? Which service packs of Office?

Off the top of my head you're looking possibly at a failure to copy an excel table over or a vbscript/macro which hasnt/wont run.

Copy the contents from the machine that can see the code into a new .doc file, then open it on the other machine, is it still there?

Do the same the other way around

Please check if this option is activated
Word - File - Options - Advanced - Show document content (subsection) - SHOW FIELD CODES INSTEAD THEIR VALUES.

If yes, then deactivate it. Should do the trick. If negative please post back.
