    New Error Message (Office XP Standard/Winsows XP SP2 fully patched)

    I just started getting the attached error today when I open and close Word. The second time it happened, I was told that that VB component was not installed and asked if I would like to install it. I said yess and it asked for my CD and then installed what ever it felt it was missing. I rebooted the computer, but the error still persists. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Do you have Adobe Acrobat and Norton Anti Virus? According to MSKB article You receive a "Compile error in hidden module" error message when you start Word or Excel, this combination may cause the error message.

    I had this one and I concur with Hans...it could be an Adobe issue...I had 5 with XP and the macor's all started off in the wrong folder..... Have a look in Tools | Options , click on File Locations and see where start up is ( for XP it is normally in your profile... Adobe's is usually somewhere else and they conflict ....badly... I found that switching of the Adobe menu gar helped...a little

    Thanks guys. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I recall a prompt to update Acrobat a day or so ago and I clicked OK. So that might have something to do with it. I went to the MSKB article and folowed the instructions and reinstalled the update I just got. Didn't help. Then went looking for those two files. Weren't in the startup folder for Word or Excel and can't find them any other place either. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> Perhaps, I'll remove and reinstall Acrobat and skip the updates.

    Problem solved. I uninstalled Acrobat v5 and the problem remained. I then installed Acrobat v6 and the problem went away. Thanks for the input. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
