wdwrdm32.dll issue with MS Word

This question is regarding regarding MS Office 2003 on a Windows XP OS.  When I attempt to open or save a Word or Excel document I get an error message in a Visual Basic box:  Run-time error 53, file not found wdwrdm32.dll.  I can't find that particular dll and would't know where to put it if I did.  I see that someone else had a similar problem but the solution offered (to delete a corrupted file in the startup folder didn't help.)

It might be caused by an add-in template. Do you have any global templates except for Normal.dot?

In Word, use Tools/Templates and Add-ins to check and/or look in the Word Startup folder.
Do WORLDOX and PracticeMaster mean anything to you?

This page on the WORLDOX site mentions that file:

Worlddox and Practicemaster were formerly on this law office machine.  When I tried your suggestion about reviewing Tool/Templates I got an error message in a box entitled "Worldox Integration Template Notice" stating "Template and Add-Ins not available at this time."  Appreciate your lead.  Any further ideas, or should I call Worldox?  
I'd never heard of  Worldox before, so I suggest that you contact them:
