What is the Word Work File....? And how do I get rid of it?

Recently our office has switched to Office 2007 and Windows 7. Now when we are working on documents from our server, Word Work Files show up. We can't open them and we can't delete them. What are they and why have they just begun to show up? It is not every file, but it has happened at least once to every user.

Any thoughts will be helpful.
