Prevent auto completion of hyphens, asterisks, etc in MSWORD

MSWORD has a default setting, in which if you key in a series of tilde (~), crosshatch (#), asterisk (*), underscore (_), equal sign (=), hyphen (-), they get converted to a respective border automatically as you type. This can be very annoying.

To prevent it, goto Tools->AutoCorrect Options->AutoFormat As You Type, uncheck "Border lines" under "Apply as you type"
