Cannot insert object

I received this error message when one of our users was trying to insert an ActiveX tick box control into a word document, we also received the following error.

The program used to create this object is Forms. That program is either not installed on your computer or it is not responding. To edit this object, install Forms or ensure that any dialog boxes in Forms are closed.

The resolution to this error was to delete all instances of MSForms.exd in the following folders

  • %appdata%\microsoft\forms
  • %temp%\excel8.0
  • %temp%\word8.0
  • %temp%\PPT11.0
  • %temp%\vbe

There is more information and a Microsoft Fix it available for Microsoft’s Website
