Error when embedding wmf files into any Office 2003 applicatio

When I open old files in which these graphics are already embedded (e.g.,
clipart, charts), I see a rectangle with a red X in the top left-hand corner.
When I attempt to insert new clipart or charts (using
Insert=>Picture=>Clipart or Insert=>Chart) in any document (new blank or
otherwise), it depends on the application. In Powerpoint and Publisher, I
just get an empty rectangle (no red X). In Word I get the error "Error! Not a
valid embedded object." This only happens for WMF files- JPGs, GIFs, etc all
work fine. Any ideas what might be wrong?

Thanx :)
