Why is the italics option selected per default in Word 2007?

The cursor in my MS Word 2007 has suddenly become tilted and the ‘Italics’ button in the toolbar has automatically got selected. The cursor can be normalized if the ‘Italics’ button is deselected, but reappears as tilted on restarting Word. I do not know how this has happened but would like a normal vertical cursor.

    It sounds like your default template was changed. The fix is simple, you need to de-select italics in the default settings. Unfortunately, I don't have Word installed, so I can only refer you to a site the outlines the procedure: How to Change the Default Settings in Microsoft Word 2007
