My spyware detected a Trados file and I deleted it

Hi, I use Trados 6.5 and my spyware detected a suspicious file beginning with TWAIN.....

At that time, I was not smart enough to recognise that this is a Trados file, and I deleted it immediately.

Now, I open the Workbench but my Word XP says "Trados workbench is not running".

Does anybody know which file is missing or how to fix this problem?

thanks
evdoxia

Copy the TRADOSx.dot Jan 17, 2006

(x indicates the version number of Trados) from the Trados installation folder to your Word start-up folder.

Then it should work.
A TWAIN-file shouldn´t be a Trados file AFAIK, it belongs to optical recognition software.

Jerzy's solution Jan 17, 2006

thanks Jerzy, but this solution doesn t work.
I've tried it and it keeps telling me that Trados Workbench is not running.

I'll uninstall and reinstall it now.
thanks anyway

Not a Trados file... Jan 17, 2006

Hi Evdoxia,
What makes you think this was a Trados file?

TWAIN.dll/TWAIN_32.dll are Windows libraries controlling the communication with scanners, for example.

Best regards,
Ralf

There MUST be other reasons Jan 17, 2006

As Ralf allready pointed out, TWAIN*-files are used by the operating system and are definitely not TRADOS files. I checked this at the moment - there is no single file with such name in any of Trados folders and corelated folders.

So if your Trados is not working, Word does not see or load the template. If the proper template is in your Word start-up folder, start Word. When it still says Trados cannot be loaded, please check the menu Format, submenu Styles and Ad-Ins and make sure, that the TRADOSx.dot is checked there.

HTH
Jerzy

PS
More about TWAIN here.
TWAIN can be considered as the abbreviation of "Technology Without An Interesting Name"icon_biggrin.gif

why not run the installation again... Jan 17, 2006

and get all the ducks back into the row. It does not help much to worry about what has been deleted and what not.

btw, the connection virus checker and TRADOS just does not compute. It's the first time I heard a TRADOS file would have a bad (ie virus-like) fingerprint.

Check your antivirus/spyware settings Jan 18, 2006

Hello

Some antivirus applications do interfere with Trados macros. You can not resolve the problem until you tune up macro antivirus settings in spyware detection module. In some cases (as with Kaspersky antivirus) even disabling macro module from tray does not help - you should change startup settings of your antivirus.

Thanks Valery and all the rest,

The problem was created by Kaspersky. It blocked my macros.
Now I found the solution.

Here's the solution!! Mar 7, 2006

I had the same trouble.
You can solve the problem, by opening Word application and then lowering the security level in Tools > Option > Security > Macro Security.

I'm sure this will help you.
Have a nice day!

Another suggestion Mar 7, 2006

Try to set "Enable real-time VBA macros monitoring" option to "High speed" or lower level from Kasper-sky antivirus or other antivirus software.
