Hello,

I had a year ago problems with implementing Service Pack 2 to SDL Trados 2007. - After asking support I managed to get it done, but Service Pack for Multiterm was not to be fed in.

After many tries of uninstalling and reinstalling I ended up with Trados and Multiterm twice in the Word toolbar. - I have almost never used Multiterm anyhow, and although I had Trados twice in the toolbar everything worked.

Two months ago I had a short try with Wordfast as a possible alternative Trados. Since then, on each closing of Word I was asked whether to "Save Changes to Multiterm?" - although I had no Multiterm open and not even opened Trados.

In order to get rid of this as well as the double presence of both Trados and Multiterm in Word I recently again returned the licence, uninstalleld all I had of SDL in panel control - Trados, Multiterm and Synergy, reinstalled Trados and Multiterm and activated. -

Now Trados and Multiterm are both just once in the Word toolbar. - But instead of Multiterm it is now Trados that on every closing of Word asks me whether I wish to "Save Changes to Trados?"

Does anyone know a solution for this kind of malfunction?

I have tried the solution proposed by Talisma. -

But on trying to delete $RADOS8.dot and $ltiTerm7.dot, as they are called by them and as they are actually recorded in XP/Word 2003, there comes the information that for being zip-compressed files they cannont be deleted.
