I had to reinstall office 2010 in win 8 as when i opened access it said no resources. Now my standard ms active x sliders dont work when i put the mouse over them it says : the expression mousemove you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: there was an error loading an active x control.

the references are attached.

i am not sure which i might be missing unless its something else.

I don't see a reference to any ActiveX controls in your references image. You'd have to reference whatever libraries are necessary to support that control. Find a copy of the database that does work, and compare the references in that db to the one that is faulting.

Please also note that there are very few controls actually compliant with Access 2010 (and none of those are provided by Microsoft). Using ActiveX controls in Access is risky, and can ultimately result in problems that are not resolvable.
