Default How to disable Mail Merge task pane in Word 2007?

I am about ready to throw my laptop through a wall.

I have a number of invoice templates I created that are linked to an excel
spreadsheet (customer database).

When I have Word set up to open new documents in the same window (the "Show all windows in the taskbar" box in Advanced options is unchecked) I also get a bonus- the Mail Merge task pane opens along with any new document I create (from templates).

When Word is set to open new documents in their own windows I do not get the Mail Merge task pane.

(System- Win 7 all updated, Word 2007 SP2)

I really, really, really would like word to stop doing that. I do NOT NEED THE DAMN TASK PANE!!!

Please help me.
