Hi, I thought I resolved this client's with using thisisudax.org conduit malware removal.  The problem returned and I ran the utility again only to have the message open up intermittently when running powerpoint files.  The office suite is updated.  Do you have any additional tips for the annoying probklem?

check add-ins. Tools | Options | Add-in. What's listed?

If there's a bluetooth add-in there, even if it's listed in the "not active" part of the list, remove that add-in. It's notorious for causing these kinds of problems.

It's hard to give suggestions without knowing what all you did....

 yes, I neglected to mention the removal of manage add-ins.  My bad.   I used CCleaner, Hitman Pro, thisisudax, and malware malbytes.

Does the crash occur with all files or just one particular PPT file?

What do you mean by "running"? Are you (the user) in edit mode when this happens, or are you in slide show view?

You removed the bluetooth add-in, but are there any others listed when you to to Tools | Options | Add-ins? At the bottom of that dialog, choose COM add-ins, then GO. Anything listed? What if you choose PowerPoint add-ins there? Anything listed?

Oh yeah, also look at printer drivers: http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00952_How_to_install_a_TEST_printer_driver.htm

I know it sounds weird, but it's an easy enough thing to test.

I revisited the Bluetooth add-on thing after running sfc /scannow.   I ran powerpoint in admin mode and noticed the Bluetooth add-on was still present.  It was removed and all is well.
