    Persistent Acrobat Toolbar (2003 SP1)

    My IT-installed copy of Word has two Acrobat items that insist on showing up on their own toolbar, even after they are "deleted." Their toolbar also insists on being on its own line, eating up valuable screen real estate. The items are Acrobat Connect and Acrobat PDFMaker 8.0. If I View > Toolbars > Customize > Toolbars tab, and uncheck their boxes, they temporarily disappear. But as soon as I move to some other ap and return the focus to Word, they arise from the dead and reappear. Same deal if I uncheck their boxes, highlight them, and hit Delete in the Toolbars tab. Same deal if I move them to empty space on a different toolbar. I never use these things. What is the silver bullet to make them die?

    Adobe Acrobat installs a COM Add-In that recreates the toolbar. You can uninstall the Microsoft Office component of PDFMaker (while retaining the ability to use Adobe Acrobat) as follows:
    - Select Start | Control Panel.
    - Open the Add or Remove Programs control panel.
    - Select Adobe Acrobat 8...
    - Click Change/Remove.
    - Click Next >.
    - Click Modify.
    - Click Next >.
    - Select Microsoft Office under Acrobat PDFMaker.
    - Select 'This feature will not be available' from the dropdown list.
    - Click Next >.
    - Click Finish (I think, I didn't go this far).

    Thanks for the answer, Hans. I reckon I'll need to corral the IT guy with Admin privileges; oh well.
