Track Changes 'pop-up' with who made the change and when they made it not showing up

Normally when you have Track Changes turned on, and someone makes a change, the change is in a different color and is underlined.  Then there is a ballon over to the side with what the change consists of.

Well I have a user who uses this function frequently and now something funky is going on.

Normally, you can put your mouse cursor over one of the underlined changes.  After a few seconds, a yellowish pop up will appear.  This pop up contains who made the change and when the change was made.

For Example:  BSmith, 6/13/2006  10:15AM; Inserted:   The cat jumped over the lazy fox.


For some reason, this pop up does not come up.  I have ran a Detect and Repair, have all the latest service packs and updates.  We are running Office 2003 on Windows XP.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On the Reviewing toolbar, there is a 'Show' dropdown. One of the items is 'Balloons' with three selections on the fly-out. Try changing this selection, especially if it is currently 'Never'.

Thank you for the suggesstion GrahamSkan but I actually just figured out the answer to my question. After I reloaded Office, I noticed nothing changed.  So then I decided it had to be an option or setting somewhere.

I renamed the Normal.dot file but still nothing.

I decided to go up to Tools --> Options.  Under the View Tab the top section is called "Show".

Well the option for Screen Tips was unchecked so I checked it and that solved the issue.
