When i installed Adobe 6, it installed a little toolbar in Word so i could click it and convert the current word doc to pdf, quickly.

When i restarted my machine.. the toolbar had dissapeared from MS Word. I reinstalled acrobat, and the toolbar was back.

After the next restart the toolbar had gone again.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks

Look in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup - do you see a file PDFMaker.dot? Are there any other files in this directory?
Do you have more than one (full) version of Acrobat installed?

BTW: You don't have to reinstall Acrobat: Just use the "Detect and Repair" option under the Help menu to fix any problems with Acrobat. You may need the Acrobat CD however (depends on what needs to be fixed).

**  Always back up the registry when editing it!!!!  ***
Run>Regedit

Navigate to the following:
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word\Data  <9.0 being the version you are using>

rename the follow:
toolbars to toolbarsold
settings to settingsold

If yo uhave backed it up, you can also just delete these.  This will reset the toolbars in word.

Close Regedit and open Word

pdfmaker.dot is OK, you don't need anything else. Did Staceman03's suggestion help?
