Hi,
One of our users updated their PC yesterday and after the reboot everytime he opens excel he gets the following error message with the title Micrososft Visual Basic;
"Compile error in Hidden module: modMain"
I have read that it's an Adobe problem and following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307410
hasn't helped. In fact i have removed the Adobe add on altogether.

When clicking help i get the following message;


Compile error in hidden module: <module name>
A protected module can't be displayed. This error has the following cause and solution:
•      There is a compilation error in the code of the specified module, but it can't be displayed because the project is protected.
Unprotect the project, and then run the code again to view the error.


Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks
