the user opens Excel, she can work in it, opening and closing files within excel. Mainly at the end of the day she closes her programs and she gets the hang up and error.

Adobe, Workshare, Ecopy, metadata, to name a few. All of the add ins are the same in word and have not had any problems. Would it be worth disabling the add ins one at a time to see if it is one of them?

I turned off the add ins and added them back one at a time. We found that there were a few that she did not even need or used. Workshare was the one that when turned off everything worked. There were 2 others that we turned off that we never turned back on so 1 or both of those could have caused problems as well. Thanks for the help!
