Currently I am running Outlook  2007 and I have various third party add-ins running on my machine. I am unable to change the state of the add-in from Inactive to active in the trust center. Any suggestions?

Hello whtupdoc001,

You can clear your addins with a command line.  With Outlook close, do a search for and rename extend.dat file.

Outcmd.dat is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

You may need to reinstall the addin to your computer.

Hope this helps!
