Save changes to

I'm using Scansoft Omnipage and PDF Create together with other applications like MS Word 2003. Whenever I exit Word, a message from Scansoft pops up saying:

"Do you want to save the changes to"

I've tried both Yes and No as the answers, but message pops up again - every time I exit Word. How can I get rid of it (without un-installing the Scansoft software)?

    This is a known bug that can affect addins when loaded into word.  If you have access to the Addin, open it in Visual Basic editor - just add a couple of spaces, remove them and compile it.  Then save it.  Sometimes you have to do this a couple of times before it works.  

    To test you have to close word down.  Reopen and close again to make sure it is fixed

    Had to dig around the manufacturer's support site and found that their only "solution" was to un-register (regsvr32 /u) all the add-ins. After this it seems to work ok - but the add-in functionality is obviously gone. Don't have the option to do the VB route.
