Microsoft Outlook: How to remove BlueSoeil Addin

Hi,

I installed BlueSoleil kind of a while ago (like 1 year now) and see that the 'BlueSoleil Addin' in Microsoft Outlook stays there ALL THE TIME. I have tried all the Microsoft Outlook versions: Outlook, Outlook XP, Outlook Express, Outlook 2007. I just can't seem to get rid of it, I haven't tried all the options available (i.e. Regedit or anything like that).

I'm currently running Microsoft Office 2007 [Beta 2] and it is still is there. The options are still the same as any other Outlook, so can someone tell me a simple way of getting rid of it - if you can?

Things I've tried (not much):
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Right clicking the top area and unticking 'BlueSoleil Addin'
2. Right clicking top area, going into 'Customize' and unticking it from there.
3. Right clicking top area, going into 'Customize' and deleting it from there.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I believe there is some program which is enabling it to startup and activate it all the time. I think it is the BlueSoleil Bluetooth thing, but I'm not sure.

Uninstalling the software is not an option. Person with quickest and correct response receives full points with grade of "A". Just to boost up the competition :)

Thanks,

Greetings, Nerdx !

To remove an addin in Outlook, go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > Microsoft BlueSoleil Add-in, and then click Remove.

go to Tools > Options > Other tab > Advanced Options button > Addin Manager COMM Addin.  Uncheck the BlueSoeil addin.

Nerd,

Then you need to search your folders for BlueSoleil and delete the files and folders. Make sure to search hidden folders or unhide hidden folder.

Then search your registry for BlueSoleil and delete them. Backup your registry first.

I believe I said "Uninstalling the software is not an option". The software isn't made for Outlook alone, it is bluetooth software. I just want to find out a way how to disable the Microsoft Outlook Add-in and keep the other software. In Add/Remove Programs there is no separate installation file for the BlueSoleil Add-in, which I already know.

Any other suggestions?

Nerdx,

When you said you have basically done the same as I posted, what did you do?  Did you go to Addin Manager and disable the addin?

Sorry for the confusion,

I tried to go to: Tools > Options > Other tab > Advanced Options button > Addin Manager COMM Addin but I couldn't find 'Addin Manager COMM Addin' anywhere. The only way I disabled/deleted it was by right clicking anywhere near top, clicking 'Customize' and then doing it in that bit.

There should be a button for Addin Manager and a button for COMM Addin.  Click the button and you will see a list of addins.  Uncheck BlueSoleil

Here is a direct link to the image to the 'Advanced Options' section:

Can you tell me what I need to look for there, or if it is there?

Nerdx,

Outlook 2007 Add-in Manager is located in different place than Outlook 2000/2002/2003.  Go to

Tools > Trust Center > Add-ins.

Works, thanks a lot man! Really got me annoyed that did...

Seeing as it's gone, I will forget that little mistake and give you grade A anyway :)

Enjoy.
