I keep trying to fix this text file that has all this weird gobbly gook on the bottom. I select the gobbly gook delete it then save... close the file.. reopen and the gobbly gook is back. So then I go into select the gobbly gook type over it "Go Away" ... save--close--open.. Gobbly gook is back with my words "Go Away" above it....

What's the text file for? Is it a file you created or a file you're editing for another reason? It sounds like there might be a process running somewhere that's writing a checksum or something to the bottom of the file.
Is the gobbly gook the same every time, or does it change? If it's the same every time, try writing something different than 'Go Away' and see if it changes at all when you open it back up.

it's an included file for our website that contains our specials. This way I just have to change a small file rather then opening the whole page.. I also then include it on several pages. The Gobbly Gook is parts of the page further up... like someone took little bits and piece of the markup up top and scrambled it at the bottom. On top of this stuff in Word and Excel aren't wanting to save. I hit save but the saves don't stick.

Sarah, you can probably solve this by creating a new text file, and copying only the ones you need. I remember facing the same problem, but once done the way mentioned above, I didn't give it much thought.
