VBE is Visual Basic Editor, everything suggests that you have the editor open, or a popup dialog box open from VBE when you went to shut down.

If this isn't correct, have you run Defrag and Defraged and packed your entire drive?  This can help.  There is also a SR2A for Office97, have you installed it?  I'm assuming you have Office97, SR1 from your complaint, am I correct?  Also did you add the Microsoft Web Browser Control (on the Control Toolbox
toolbar), this could be a problem.

For a quick and easy trick, with Word closed, rename normal.dot to normal.xxx and then start Word. This fixes so many problems that it's always worth a shot.

Install SR2A, there are many things that can go wrong in SR1. So far SR2A has been pretty stable.
