Excel VBA Button Won't Click

I have an Excel file that uses VBA to extract data from a Pervasive SQL database. The VBA code runs when a button is clicked on the worksheet. Suddenly, the button won't click and the code won't run. I've checked the TrustCenter settings in Excel, and nothing has changed. Macros are set to "Disable all macros with notification." I've set the network share as a Trusted Location. Other users on the network are having the same issue. My user has domain admin rights. But when I log in under a separate domain admin account, the button does click and the VBA code runs. I can't find a GPO that might be causing this either.

are you in design mode? When you click the button does the button get selected? Or does nothing happen at all?

right click the button and make sure that there is code tied to it. Right-click, assign macro, then if a macro is tied to the button it will be displayed under Macro name:

This is an issue with recent updates for Office. Start a search from the %temp% folder for MSForms. exd,  and remove them, while Office is not running.

Yes, it is an issue with a recent update. Just discovered it after banging my head against the wall for an hour.
MS published a Fixit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3025036/EN-US

Deleting the MSForms.exd file did fix the problem. But the Fixit solution published by Microsoft and explained by MacroShadow was more complete and covered all of the Office programs--not just Excel. Thanks for your help!
