Default Broken links in Microsoft Word 2007 (Help Please!)

Hi. For some reason the word document I was working on decided to alter all links connected to other word documents. So for example, a functional link address would've looked like the following, "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\desktop\folder\section\word document.docx." But then word changed the address to "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\folder\section\word document.docx. Now any time I click on one of these links I get a ""cannot open specified file" error. So why would word suddenly decide to add the file path of "application data\microsoft\word" to every link in the document? I don't have time to go through each link in this file and fix them all. Is there some way to fix this problem, and how would I prevent this from happening again?

Much appreciated!!!
