I use Windows 7 and Word 2007. I've just run AVG PC Tuneup to tidy up my laptop. Immediately after the "cleanup" I find I cannot use wordfast. The error message I get is (I'm translating it):

" The document contains macros, but the application does not support the macro language. Services requiring the VBA language cannot be located. " then lots of other blurb about security settings, which I suspect is not relevant - I've experimented with the Macro security settings anyway.

I've looked at the security center and ticked the box for wordfast.dot to come up in the Normal.dot - but the same thing happens every time I open word, an error message telling me VBA services are missing. presumably i had them before (wordfast was working yesterday) so I shouldn't need to download them - merely activate them. Or am I wrong?

BTW I was using wordfast 5.92b

Thanks for your help.
