I am using Office 2007 ulitmate and had migrated my settings from an older windows vista laptop using a transfere cable.  I installed the office suite on my new Windows 7 computer but, only when opening an Excel 2007 file, I get the following message:

Microsoft Office Excel

'C:\users\steve\appdata\roamin\/microsoft\searchcommands\excel\scoutcomands.xlam'couldnotbefound. Check the spelling of the file name, and verify that the file location is correct.

If I click on the Ok, in the message, then the file opens up.  Any help would be appreciated.

Have a look in the add-ins - it looks like the references to the "search" tool "scout" are there.  If so, look to remove them and things should be fine (or re-download scout for Office - I think it was on OfficeLabs)

Thanks again for the help.  I opened add-ins and unchecked scout.  All works fine now.
