    Every time MS Office 2000 Word porgram is opened, a pop up message "Compile error in hidden module: WinFaxPrintAndMerge"
    shows up. I cannot find this hidden module anywhere as it is protected. How do I unprotect it? After an uninstallation of a downloaded WinFax Pro program from the net, this problem ocurred.
    Thanks so much for your help in answering this dilema!

    Rename your normal.dot file to normal.old and/or see if there's any files in the Startup folder under the MS Office folders. Probably c:\program files\microsoft office\startup...or somewhere right around there. Remove them, at least temporarily, to see if it helps.

    You may lose the ability to use "Send to" to send a fax tho. I'm not sure. I don't know/use winfax, so I'm not positive if you need the code in the Startup/normal.dot, but I doubt it.

    Hope this helps!
