at Uni the admin installed something to ensure that you couldn't add "unknown" components to a VB application. since it is possible to write a component, bring it on to the system and then execute it inside VB which could do harm, like a virus etc.

don't know what it was or how to get rid of it.

i concur, reinstall it.
