On one PC in our environment that is running windows XP pro and Office 2000 the user clicks on open and recieves the above error. The dll does exist in the Windows folder, but I am unfamiliar with this dll and cannot find information on it anywhere? Any suggestions? The user had been wanting to upgrade to Office XP so we made the upgrade and still the error appears.

This happens when there is an old corrupted file in :
C:\Documents and Setting\myusername\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

Even with reinstalling the application it will not go away since stored in the profile.
