Uinstalled an Outlook Plugin but Outlook keeps looking for it!

See the screenshot. I get this message twice every time I open Outlook. and sometimes at other random intervals.

I tried contacting MAPILabs but they are unresponsive (this is part of the reason why I uninstalled this blasted add-in)

- Yes, I did uninstall the add-in from Add/Remove Programs
- Checking the COM add-ins verifies that the plugin is no longer there
- I went in the registry and removed all references to MAPILabs, still didn't fix it
- I ran a registry cleaner, it still did not fix it.

Help!

Try running Outlook from the run menu as such: Outlook -a

This resets Outlook to the default settings.

Hi,
Outlook /cleanprofile would be a good option. How did you remove the Add-In - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA100341271033.aspx. Good Read http://help.lockergnome.com/office/Outlook-2007-Removing-longer-exists--ftopict941362.html

Following the steps from gupnit's last link worked. The extend.dat file was the culprit.

Thanks for the help. That did, indeed, fix the problem.

I had to first open "My Computer" and then from that window:

Tools>Properties>View>Hidden Files and Folders and then tick the "Show hidden files and folders" option.

Then I could...

C:>Documents and Settings>User Name>Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook and then delete extend.dat.
