Adobe Professional add in locks Word normal.dot template!

I am experiencing a problem on a number of our desktops where after an installation of Adobe Professional 7 changes to normal dot are no longer saved. Commands or macros added to tollbar only stay there until the end of the session. Ditto default font. I have tried using an old normal dot but to no avail. If we uninstall Adobe everything is fine. I know that we could remove Adobe plug in from word registry but just wondering if there is another solution that allows for Adobe toolbar to stay in word without causing havoc (it also persists on taking a row for itself despite being only three buttons). Only workaround solution is to create normal dot on uninfected computer but that is a lot of work.

Still you can force Word to save Normal.dot at any time by using Shift+File/ Save All
Ie: Press Shift while you click on File, which will make the File menu display Save All. This will trigger Word to save all open documents and templates including the Normal.dot

I can't believe it was this easy but I tested it and it works. The internet and EE are full of this problem not once did I come across this solution. Thanks!
