Microsoft Office 2000

I have installed office 2000 into my system.  No matter when I open the program I get the following message:
                      Run-time error '5'
                      Invalid procedure call or
At the top of this message it says Microsoft Visual Basic.  My question is, how do I prevent this message.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program but nothing changes.

Thank you

RE: Microsoft Office 2000

Does this only happen when you open Word, or does it happen with any other MSOffice app? If it's only Word, it could be a virus that enables macros.


RE: Microsoft Office 2000

I agree w/RMG.  I have discovered that whenever the VB Editor opens w/an error message whenever a Word document is opened or even closed, the most likely reason is a macro virus.  Update your virus scanner and definitely check for viruses.
