    Permanently disable Reading Layout (2003 SP2)

    Is there anyway to PERMANENTLY disable the Reading Layout? I already tried unchecking the "Allow starting in reading layout" box in Word and that works, but only for as long as I am logged in. When I turn the computer on every morning, I have to uncheck it again. I also searched via google and found the macro below but that isn't working either. If anyone has found a solution to this, I would be extremely grateful!

    Private Sub Document_New()
    Options.AllowReadingMode = False
    End Sub

    Private Sub Document_Open()
    Options.AllowReadingMode = False
    End Sub

    Thanks.

    Unchecking that box should do it, so I wonder whether you have another issue with Word settings you change not sticking?

    As far as I can tell, it happens on every computer I've tried this on. If I turn the computer off, the checkmark disappears when I restart (or login and logout). I've tried it on about 5 computers now (personal, school, work etc). Don't have any addins installed so I have no idea. I did run across a lot of people having this exact issue when I started researching this...
