Make sure Word and Outlook are closed.

Delete the 4 QuickStart files (FSConfigSettings.xml, FSQuickStart.dot, FSQuickStart.dotm and licabout.xml) from the Word Startup folder located at C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP.

 

Note: You may need to change a setting in Windows Control Panel to allow you to see hidden folders since AppData is generally a hidden folder. How to show hidden folders varies depending upon your version of Windows, this link shows how to do it for Windows 7 & 10: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hidden-files#show-hidden-files=windows-7
