Prevent addin tabs (e.g. Bluetooth, Netviever etc.) from appearing on customised ribbon menu's - office

I have installed an access runtime application with a customised ribbon with just one tab. However on one client laptop a "Bluetooth" tab also appears.

I know this will be something to do with an office addins  he has installed (he has other office programs but not the full access software installed).

Is there any way to prevent these addins from automatically appearing on a customised menu - apart from uninstalling the addin from the PC.

Many thanks

I haven't verified this, but I believe that add-ins can be prevented if you build your ribbons up using the "Start From Scratch" option rather than 'building them down' from the default Office ribbon.

Alternatively, you might try hiding the Add-Ins tab:

 <tab idMso="TabAddIns" visible="false">

I tested the start from scratch out and this works - thanks.

Thanks also for the tip about visible = false.

Many thanks,
