Compile error in hidden module: keep getting recurrent errors

Posted on 2004-11-06

I had to reinstall Windows XP due to a malware problem on my computer.  I reinstalled windows, then Office 2003, and now anytime I use Office programs I get a [Microsoft Visual Basic] Compile Error in hidden module: w/various module names.  Some I have seen are:  AutoExit, AutoExecNew, DistMon.

I cannot figure out what is going on.  We had the same virus/malware issue on 2 computers in our house and this happend to both of them.  It doesn't seem to affect the operating of the program as I can tell so far, however, it is driving us crazy because something is obviously not right.

Can anyone help!?

    Hi Debbie,

    Do you have PDFMAKER installed (related with DitsMon module)?

    Accepted Solution

    So your problem should be having PDFMAKER template files in startup folder(s) and they have Auto macros that causes compile error while opening the application.
