If I open Excel and then open the VBA window then close it, every time I RDP to my computer, the VBA window is open again, even if I closed it before disconnecting.

The next time I am sat locally to my computer, it is open also, but if I close it, it remains closed until I RDP etc.

Has anyone seen this behaviour before?

Open it, or run VBA? – Raystafarian Jun 2 '14 at 15:14
@Raystafarian I only ever open it to change a function I have written or to write a new one. I have not tried just opening the window and doing nothing but closing it. It doesn't happen unless I first open the VBA window though. – neildeadman Jun 2 '14 at 15:50
Is this in every file or just a specific file? – Raystafarian Jun 2 '14 at 15:51
I have seen this in 2 files now. – neildeadman Jun 2 '14 at 15:53
What about files that don't have any VBA? Does it happen with them? Maybe the code is flawed is what I'm getting at. – Raystafarian Jun 2 '14 at 15:54
