I am using Wordfast 5.51t3 under Word 2002

Some time ago, I installed a trial version of Adobe Acrobat 9 (since uninstalled)

However, it has left me with 2 unwanted menu headers in the menu bar: Adobe PDF and Acrobat Comments.

Normally, this wouldn't matter too much; but unfortunately, when they arrived, they seem to have removed my Wordfast Help menu — which does matter! I am going to post this same question in the Office apps. forum, but I wanted to ask here if anyone knows how to at least get my Wordfast help menu back?

I have previously asked this same question in the Wordfast support group forum on Yahoo! Groups, but sadly no really conclusive advice was forthcoming there.

Thanks, in advance!

Add-ins conflicts Dec 16, 2008

In MS Word 2000 and later, menu of Wordfast, Trados, Acrobat PDF etc. cause conflicts. I read that it is a Word program bug.
Many Proz fora explained how to solve the problem. Please search for it.
