I have a Outlook installation with what appear to be half a dozen various plugins (gotomeeting, prophet crm, livemeeting, etc). Outlook is unstable, so I want to disable/reenable to figure out what is causing the issue.

Only problem is that none are listed under tools/options/other/advanced/com or addin mgr.

Is there somewhere else that they are listed? Some easy way to activate/deactivate? I'm sure there's registry entries, but looking for something end user could do.

Thanks - Joe

They can be in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Extensions

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins

Those are the 2 places that most all add-ins can be found.

If you do anything, be sure to backup the registry key you are deleting or modifying.

Also, you will probably want to search for and rename "extend.dat".  This is a hidden file on some operating systems, so you need to be able to view all files (enable this in "Folder Options" in the Tools menu of My Computer).  And when you search, expand the Advanced options and tell it to search subfolders and hidden files and folders.

Hope that helps.
