Deleting unwanted projects

Hello,

During the course of the development of my front-end I noticed a project called Utility appearing in the project explorer window which I didn't create. It has couple of forms (one is called Form_ad_frmAutoDial, for example) and a few modules. I want to delete the whole project, but it doesn't allow to do it. It even says it is locked when I try to see its properties.

Could this be a virus? How can I get rid of it?

Thanks,
ggv

Did you try to create a new database and import just your objects ?

Yes. This way I reduced my front-end size three times.

Hi Nic,

Is this could be the cause of the problem? How can I get rid of this unwanted project?

ggv

Commented:
Hmm Autodial points probably to the dialer, did you use the phone control and did you delete that perhaps ?
Just check your references. Open some VBA code (Press CTRL+G) and see what's in Tools/References checked as libraries used.
Just uncheck as many as possible without getting an error when using Debug/Compile all modules.

No, I did not use any kind of phone control. Therefore I got very suspicious, because this Autodial, as the name suggests, might be calling some party and maybe transfering some of my data? Is there a way to delete altogether an unwanted project?

Yes, I did. I guess I'll have to reinstall Office.
