How to reset "columns" in Microsoft Word 2002

Hi. I have Microsoft Word 2002. I use Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002. When I was trying to create a document I went to Page Set Up and changed the format to 4 columns. I may have done something else accidentally but I don't know what since I'm not really proficient in all the functions of Word.

Now whenever I copy and paste anything from the internet, etc. it shows up in 4 columns. Also whenever I open Word it is set to type format in 4 columns. I can't figure out how to change it back to the original "full page". Or how to get rid of the columns. I also tried setting up different tabs, etc. I did try to reset to default settings but it didn't make any difference. Can you help me with this?

Try the old fix. Rename normal.dot to normal.old, start word and try again.

Not to sound really ignorant, but how do I do this? Confused (And by the way, I did try going to format-columns, and selecting 1 and it only worked for the current document).
