Windows 7: Page Numbering Issues Word 2007

Page Numbering Issues Word 2007

We are having trouble getting the page numbers to start with page 1 on the 3rd page of the document.

I tried making a new section starting on page 3 so that it is page 1 but it also numbers the 2 pages in the top section and when I delete them - they ALL go away on the whole document.

I think word on windows is going to make me lose my mind! LOL I love Word 4 on my old mac - it is so reasonable.

Please help! Even the Word for Dummies book is not helping.

Word 2007 will not restart numbering in Windows 7
I've been using Office forever. Word 2003 and 2007 have their problems providing stable renumbered lists using XP Pro, but Word 2007 in Windows 7 won't even try to do it. I've turned off as many autoformat options as may affect numbering or styles, but still no luck. I refuse to manually number...
