    'Unknown error returned from application' on open (XP)

    Everytime I open Word, I get a message "Unknown error returned from application. Error caught at [file Connect.cpp, line 254] Operation canceled. Contact technical support if this error persists". Oddly, closing the message box allows me to continue in Word with no apparent problems. Can't find anything about this on Microsoft support site.

    There is probably a COM add-in acting up. Check out Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post>, in particular the 3rd step.
