Well, problem solved. For anyone who runs into the same type of file corruption, uninstalling, deleting, and reinstalling FoxPro is not enough. This is what I did:

1) Uninstalled VFP, SOAP, all related software from the system.
2) Deleted all that software
3) Searched the hard drive for any occurrences of Fox, VFP and Visual and deleted appropriate related files (Usually in the /Program Files\Common Files\ sub folders.
4) Searched the registry for any occurrences of Fox, VFP, and visual, and deleted appropriate registry entries.
5) Rebooted
6) Repeated steps 3 and 4, and when clean....
7) Installed VFP to a folder other than the default folder.

I believe the last step is the key. Because something external to VFP must be affecting the builders to cause the problem I was having. What ever that is /was it has not found the new location. BTW, I highly suspect the Euro conversion tool Add-In that I installed in MS Excel.
