please try the following

Go to Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs and uninstall the Office and add-in.

Start new installation of Office 2010 (right-click on setup.exe and choose to run as administrator)

Follow the steps of the Installation Wizard.

Open Excel and check if the add-in appeared under the tab

Go to the Office button, Options, Add-ins, Click Disabled Items from the Manager drop down and click Go - you should be able to find the add-in that you're looking for in here if it's not launching.

hi,

The mere fact that there are icons at the left of your screenshot suggests that either:
- an addin/file, which uses a custom toolbar, is open.
- or an addin/file, which is closed, doesn't contain cleanup code to remove the custom toolbar when the file is closed.

Do you know that you have addins open in Excel?
What are you expecting to see?

I only have Excel 2007, but I find it easier to see the list of addins by using the shortcut of [alt + t + i] to bring up the list of addins rather than looking via the Ribbon. This approach may also work in Excel 2010.

Another technique to see what addins are open, is to open the VBE (eg using [alt + F11]) and look at the Project Pane, which commonly appears at the left of the VBE screen.
