I don't want Word to always be on top

All of my MS Word windows are always on top, and it's driving me nuts.

This also holds for Outlook new-message windows, which are winword.exe under the hood. It's killing my productivity - for example, I can't alt-tab away from a Word document, because even if I move to another app, the Word doc is still on top, so I have to manually minimize/restore constantly. Google's failed me - all I can find is people who want to make Word do this, not stop it, and the answer always seems to be "use this third-party tool," which I obviously don't have installed. It's Word 2003 that's at fault here. Help?

I found this suggested solution for Outlook 2003, and it sounds like it's the same problem you are dealing with.

Doesn't work, I fear.
