SYMPTOMS
If you create a FileOpen, AutoExec, AutoNew, or AutoOpen macro in MicrosoftWord 97 for Windows, and WinStone anti-virus software is installed, themacro will not run. When you restart Word, the macros have been renamed tosimilar names, such as FileOpenOld.
CAUSE
The Macro-Virus prevention feature in WinStone anti-virus softwareeliminates the FileOpen, AutoExec, AutoNew and AutoOpen macros.
WORKAROUND
To work around this behavior, disable the automatic macro virus protectionby moving the Lmdwav.dll file out of the Winword/Startup folder. You canstill run the WinStone anti-virus package manually; however, WinStone willnot be able to automatically scan for macro viruses.
