    VB Compile Error

    With a P4 computer and W2000SP2 and Office XP, when closing Outlook I get the following VB error window: COMPILE ERROR IN HIDDEN MODULE. AUTO EXEC There does not seem to be any effect on the operation of the system--just an annoying closing down of the window.

    Any help in fixing this would be appreciated....

    Re: VB Compile Error

    What add-ins are you using in Outlook? Check Tools|Options...|Other tab|Advanced Options button and, on that tab, the Add-In Manager and COM Add-Ins buttons.

    Re: VB Compile Error

    Under Add-In Manager:

    - AVG Exchange Extensions
    - Exchange Extensions Property Pages

    ( I believe both these are related to my AVG virus protection program)

    Under Com Addins

    - Attachment Options
    - Outlook backup add-in

    Are any of these a likely problem--otherwise I suppose I can uncheck them one-by-one and see if eliminating any one or more of them will solve the problem....???

    Thanks for the prompt response...

    Re: VB Compile Error

    Very strange....I decided to check Compile Error on other OfficeXP programs. Ran WordXP and got Compile Error on startup and close; same thing for Excel. FrontPage and PowerPoint ran without without any Compile Error.

    I tried running all the OfficeXP programs again and lo and behold the Compile Error disappeared and I haven't seen it since. I don't know why but executing the OfficeXP probram seemed to result in some sort of "self-healing"...maybe someone else with the same problem can try this "fix"...

    Thanks for the response....
