Looking for a method/addins that will clean up my vba, removing all erroneous codes and sheets that are still visible in VBA Editor, however, no longer exists in the workbook.  (ie ThisWorkbook1, thisWorkbook2)

Did you try quitting and restarting Excel?

yes and stays there.  I know this has been an issue in the past, and I have seen some addins that can be used, unfortunately I am unable to download these to my work system - do not have admin rights

I had this issue a few years back, any time the workbook had been with a colleague who had a corrupt Excel installation.

Back then the solution was to save as Excel95 - close - open - save as Excel2003. This meant that you loosed some stuff from Excel2003

The modernized version would be to export all VBA, save the workbook as an XLSX (no macros), open it, import back all VBA and save it as an XLAM again.

Good Luck

Sorry, the last should obviously be "save as an XLSM again".
