    Good morning

    Whenever my work PC goes into screensave mode the Word VB window has opened itself when I log back in. Any ideas why please? There are no modules, macros etc. in the VB Window it just seems to be empty and the other projects mentioned are unviewable and I therefore assume are system VB projects. There are also no toolbars available.

    Has this behavior been happening for a long time, or did it just recently start happening?
    According to the screenshot, you do have two third-party add-ins running. Did you recently install either of these, and did this new behavior coincide with installing either of these?
    Also according to the screenshot, you've got two instances of WordWinCalendar running - not exactly sure how that happened, but I'd expect that to cause some kind of flaky behavior - you should only have one instance running.

    Can you try temporarily uninstalling or unloading these add-ins, and see if the behavior goes away? - I'm betting on it being caused by one of these.

    Hi Gary

    Thanks for the response. As far as I know those add ins have always been there as I have never used the VBA in Word only in Excel and I have not downloaded any new (only updates to ASAP) add ins for at least a year. I unloaded all and bingo you were right. When I go back to the office on Monday I will experiment by re-adding them and see what happens.
    Cheers
