I am Running Windows XP Pro with Office XP

When I open up Word only with the assistant open, it will start typing some 
text automatically.
Usually "The" or "The the" or "To" or "But" or "But but"
It only does it in Word & Publisher and sometimes when you are in a Forum on 
the Net and type an Emotion.
It will even type it in the Text Box of the Office Assistant.
Does not do it in Outlook Express or other programs.

A Virus I here you say, or a Macro Virus to be exact.

I have Scanned with the following Virus Scanners
Online with House Call which uses Trend.
Online at Pit Stop which uses Panda.

Myself I was using AVG (Grisoft) at the time of the problem started.
Have taken the Drive out and placed it in other machines as a Secondary Master
And Scanned with VET, Kapersky's, Norton's & AVG Pro.
All Scanners were up to date.
Nothing I do or try, finds a Virus, all say I am Clean.
I have replace All Office Templates.

Any thoughts before I do a re-install?
