Using Windows 10 Word 2007

After several years with no problems, all of a sudden when I type:

www.abc.com

it gets formated as

HYPERLINK {"http://www.abc.com"}

It used to format as live underlined link www.abc.com

When I open existing documents www.abc.com is formated as HYPERLINK {"http://www.abc.com"}

To troubleshoot (unsuccessfully) I've done the following:

1. Word Options, Proofing, AutoCorrect Options..., AutoFormat as you type
Check Internet and network paths with hyperlinks

2. Run Microsoft Office Diagnostics

Have a look at Word Options/Advanced/Show field codes instead of their values, and see if that is set.
