Error in loading dll when closing Word or Excel

After removing some unused programs, I get "error in loading dll" when I close Word or Excel. I click OK and the program closes. I have installed all critical updates from Microsoft. I even replaced the dll files in Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11 folder with the dll files from a computer with the same setup. Still get the error. I ran an Office Repair. Still the error. Is there some other procedure to correct the error or should I uninstall Office and reinstall it?

Does it tell you what dll? Can you remember what programs you uninstalled?

Do you have and 3rd party plugins/toolbars such as a pdf creator that might be causing the error?

It sounds like the .dll doesn't belong to Office, but yet Office relies on it. A re-install of office is therefore unlikely to help.

Agree with the above, need to know the exact error that you're getting.

The exact error is: Error in loading DLL.
Yes, the Adobe Acrobat 7.0 PDF plugin is installed.
I'm not sure what all was uninstalled. I know one program was a Kodak photo manager/printer program.

Try unloading the PDF add-in just to check if that fixes it.
If not, then open Word and check the loaded add-ins, ensuring they are all OK. Also, choose View->Toolbars->Customize..., select the Commands tab, choose Tools in the left hand list and then drag the 'COM add-ins' item to one of your toolbars and OK out of the dialog. Then click the new COM add-ins button and see what dlls may be being loaded.
Regards,
Rory

A program to convert PDF's to Word had been uninstalled but left the add-in in Word deskUNPDF.dot. Once the add-in was removed the error went away. Thanks.
