Right click on Excel.exe in Program Files (Find the excel program in Program Files).  Right click, select Run as Administrator and the remove (uninstall) the add-in.

That will work unless there is something wrong with your Office installation.

If you have simply deleted the addin then if you go into the Developer Tab and click Excel addins it should tell you something like Excel cannot find that addin, do you want to remove it from the list
