I just did a reformat of my computer, I have Windows XP home. I have installed Microsoft Office, and everytime I open Word, I get an installation screen, and then I get the "Visual Basic Compile Error Hidden Module: Auto Exec" message. When I click "OK" I can use Word. When I close word I get the same Error message. I tried to do the Macro/compile repair from the repair I found in this website's search, but I do not see a normal.dot file to delete. I have no clue what is happening, and I am afraid I know enough to get me into trouble, but not enough to fix this problem. Pleas help. It took me 3 days to reformat and get all my programs loadded back on my computer. I really need to fix this because I am afraid it will lead to other problems.
