You've certainly got something odd going on. The asterisk problem almost has to have something to do with fonts.

Are you sure the auto backup is not working? How do you know it's not working? I'm not trying to test you here.... but the only time you will see the automatic backed up document is if you have a crash of Word. That's when the file recovery will take over from the last auto backup.

As a safety feature, you should also turn on "Make a backup of the document each time you open it". That will give you an actual copy of the document from when it was last edited.

Anyway, the asterisk problem might be some weird glitch with fonts. You may have to uninstall Office 2011 and reinstall to resolve it.
