    Bloated Standard Toolbar (Word 2002)

    I'm not sure if this is a serious problem but it is very distracting. I've searched the Microsoft KB but found no references that match this problem. Within the last week the standard toolbar displays multiple Adobe Comments buttons (see attached). I'm using Adobe Professional 6.0. Also (this may be unrelated) yesterday while creating a PDF I got multiple messages that Word was running out of memory. I've been using 6.0 for over a year and never experienced this before. Any ideas what's causing this and more importantly how do I get rid of the extra buttons. I've tried resetting the toolbar to no effect.
    Thanks

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    See if Lose that Adobe Acrobat Toolbar helps.

    HansV,
    Thanks for the quick reply. I tried all 3 alternatives. None of them removed the 'extra' Adobe Comments buttons. Any other ideas/
    Thanks

    Do you have the Microsoft Works add-in for Word?

    Hi,
    I looked here Cocuments and Settingsmcoffee.TCSApplication DataMicrosoftAddIns. The Works add in was not there. Is there another place to look?
    Thanks

    You can look (within Word) in Tools | Templates and Add-Ins...
    Alternatively, select Tools | Options..., activate the File Locations tab and note the Startup location. Its default path would be

    Cocuments and Settingsmcoffee.TCSApplication DataMicrosoftWordStartup

    Also see Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post> for methods to investigate this kind of problem.

    Even if you've resolved your Adobe problem, the "customization" to your toolbar will probably remain. You could try resetting it.

    Go to Tools > Customize > toolbars
    highlight Menu bar
    Click Reset

    That should put you back to normal. I had an issue with Adobe 7.0 where I opened a template to edit it and Adobe 7 inserted it's menu items in my template - so I had to reset the menu bar on that template, too.

    HTH,
    Kim

    Yes, I tried that to no effect. I finally opened the normal.dot, saved it with a new name, then deleted (right click on each button) all extra buttons. I saved this dot; got rid of normal.dot then renamed the new one to normal.dot. The extra buttons are gone for now. Hope it lasts.
    Thanks for the help.
