when I press space tab in the keyboard, a dot is printed in the Microsoft word 2010. How can I fix this problem?

Well, a dot is not really inserted, Word is only showing spaces as dots. You can turn this off :

- Click on Tools menu > Options > View tab.
- Under Formatting marks, uncheck "Spaces".
- (If "Spaces" is clear and "All checkbox" is selected, de-select it to clear the "All check box")
- Click on OK.

thank you of your answer.but my problem did not solve.
when I write a sentence in the word 2010 the space key in the keyboard rather than creating space between the words , types a dot there.
and this results in destroying all my Microsoft word files.please help me to solve this problem.
faithfully you.
