This is not related to gnupg, but anyway:
It also depends on the version of Office and Windows where temp files 
are stored (e.g. the user's %TEMP% directory). Beside temp files there 
are also swap files, hibernation files and maybe more to take into 
If you want to ensure that confidential files are not stored 
unencrypted, you should look for full drive encryption on all used
