    I would take a look at my startup folder for Word (also for office). You may have a corrupt add-in. Also, you can look under Tools/Templates & add-ins to see what is loaded.

    I did that and yes I have something corrupted but the files are somehow protected and can't be deleted.
    Even if I could what would I replace them with. I just installed a new virus protection program. Could that somehow caused the problem. If I wanted to reinstall WOPR I can't find my original disk. It's been so long ago (like 2 computer changes ago). I appreciate your help.

    Hi KCO:
    I'm not sure, and I don't know enough about the WOPR add-in. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> I'd post the question over on the WOPR Peer-to-Peer board (listed under Other Stuff) on the main index.

    Two things that might (or might not) help:

    If you want to delete files that are showing up as global or add-in templates, you won't be able to do it while Word is running - you would need to quit Word, and use Windows Explorer to navigate to the file(s) and delete them.

    Actually, rather than delete them, you should just temporarily move them out of the startup directory. That way, if you can then start Word without problems, you know the problem is related to the add-in you removed.

    Also, have a look at Woody's Office Watch issue: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.woodyswatch.com/office/archtemplate.asp?v6-n51>Vol 6 No 51</A> - there's an item about false-positives on WOPR when running Norton Anti-Virus.
