    On reading the threads here I decided to install EMET 4.

    No trouble at first but when I launched Word 2003 that has Tabs for Office installed (http://office-tabs.com/index.htm) it would not load completely until I removed Tabs for Office. I could not find anything in EMET to source the problem. Could not add the application to EMET since I believe it uses a dll for it to work in Word.

    I have now un-installed EMET to continue using Word, however would welcome any thoughts about the problem.

    Sounds like you need to add an exception for Word 2003. You didn't say if you added Word specifically or you were just using the system wide mitigations?

    Thanks

    Had another look at it in view of your comment. Went through the exceptions and found it was the "Export Address Table Access Filtering" that was the problem. Deselecting it lets the add on run.
