macros in word

Microsoft Word 2003 win32(full prod)
July 28, 2009 at 04:47:54
Specs: Windows XP
Recently I installed clickbook for printing booklets. Since I found it very cumbersome, I had uninstalled it. The software had left some footprints in my word in the form of macros which are disabled on installation.
Whenever I open a document, this macro interferes and it takes a long time to open the page. I am unable to remove this macro from the system. Can you please help me ?

What a reply!!

I am unable to remove it because I am not an expert in ms word.
If you know how to remove it, please tell. or wait until some other expert gives an answer.

Usually you should be able to get rid of them by finding and deleting (or renaming if you prefer) all instances of the file.

They are generally found in C:\Documents and settings\(your username)\application data\microsoft\templates

Note if you can't find the "application data" folder, go to your "My Computer" and go into the Tools/Folder options... menu. On the "view" tab, make sure you have selected to Show hidden files and folders.

If you're using office 2007, you will also need to get rid of the normal.dotm file from the same location.

Please reread your original post and you'll get a better idea as to why I responded as I did.

You mentioned "footprints", you mentioned "macros which are disabled upon installation". That sounded (at least to me) like you have some level of expertise in Word macros.

Then you simply said "I am unable to remove this macro from the system" with no indication of what you had tried, where you had looked, etc.

I was simply trying to gather some more information regarding your issue before I offered specific help.

If you are going to get upset every time someone asks for more information when you post a question that needs a little clarification, you are going to have problems getting along in these forums.

I wish you luck in solving this problem.

Sorry if my reply had offended you. I posted the questions since I was at the wits end. I tried all methods known to me. Even now I consider myself as a novice only. I got the answer from some other forum.The answer is reproduced below.
1- Make sure the MS Word is not running.
2- Open Windows and go to "C:\program files\microsoft office".
3- Double click on the "office" folder.
4- Double click on the "startup" folder.
5- Delete the "" file.
I got the problem solved in a minute.

I thank you for the efforts you had put in. Sorry if I had offended you. While we grope around, the experts give straight steps. Every one of such replies teaches something.

I have not tried this forum earlier. I know the site is very good for tutorials.
