Recurring Trojan -- Exploit-MSWord.a

I regularly do a full McAfee scan and often it finds and removes Exploit-MSWord.a, which it finds in temporary (.tmp), auto-recovery and autosaved (.asd files) related to a particular Word document. Does anyone know why and how the trojan keeps returning, and whether its return can be prevented? Also, what damage can the trojan cause?
