Microsoft Visual Basic - Type Mismatch

Hello, I've restored my laptop from an Acronis TrueImage Home 11 image after a hard disk failure.  Now whenever I open MS Office 2007 documents (PowerPoint, Excel, Word) I get this error on every document (see attachment):  Microsoft Visual Basic - Type Mismatch.  I've executed Office 2007 Pro Plus repair, uninstalled/reinstalled Office 2007 Pro Plus, but no help.  I'm a consultant for the corporation who issued me this version/installation package, but because I'm a consultant they are offering me "0" support.

MS Outlook 2007 is a separate installation that is working flawlessly as well as Visio Pro 2007.

I can cancel hrough the errors and eventually launch the doc however.  Files saved as Power Point slide shows launch in PP editing mode instead of presentation mode after clearing errors.

Guidance appreciated, Thanks.

Have you tried running Word in safe mode?  It could very likely be caused by add-in templates in the startup folder ....Run winword.exe /a.

I usually moved all templates out of the startup folder and place them back one by one until I find the one that's causing the problem.

You were correct.  I inadvertantly discovered that my problem was related to NitroPDF Office Add-Ons that misbehave with Office 2007 and Vista.  I don't use any of the NitroPDF Office Add-Ins, so I re-installed NitroPDF without MS add-ins, cleaned up PowerPoint add-in registry entries, and all is well.  Thanks.
