• If you don't need or use AutoCorrect, disable it by unchecking Tools>èAutoCorrect>While typing

• If you want to keep the other AutoCorrect rulles, open Tools>AutoCorrect>AutoCorrect Options, Replace tab. Make sure your locale is selected in the top drop-down menu. Look for the line that says .*... => …. Select it and press Delete.
