I get the following error message when opening MS Word:

"Visual Basic Unexpected Error 32809"

I'm able to click through it and go on to use Word fine.

I've tried re-installing it but the error still occurs. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

You probably have a macro called Autoexec with an error in a module in your Normal.dot template.
You can look for in the code (alt-f11 to get to the VBA code window).
Or you can rename your normal.dot template, so that Word creates a new one.

The error description for that number is the default: "Application-defined or object-defined error", so even VB cannot interpret it.
