MS Word 97 acting weird..

Ever since I upgraded to WinXP, MS Word 97 has been giving me a weird message.

When I open a word document by double clicking on it, Word starts running and opens the file, and then says "<filename> is being used by <my username>. Do you want to make a copy?"

I always click no and continue working. I have no idea what'll happen if I click yes.

However, if Word is already running, and I click File --> Open --> and select my document, I don't get that message when Word opens it.

It's pretty distracting. Is there any way to stop this?

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me..
