    Add-Ins strange behavior

    I have two add-ins installed (Excel 2010). When I look at File|Options|Add-Ins|Manage Excel Add-Ins they are checked.
    However they don't appear for use.

    If I uncheck them, leave the add-ins screen, return and re-check them, they appear. Why did they stop appearing or, better yet, how can I insure they keep working?

    Can't speak to that exact issue but I've seen a lot of things that use add-ins have problems after getting program updates. It may be that the updates being fed by the publisher have to set things back to normal or default before doing the update.

    There is a recent security update to Office that can cause this. You need to locate the add-in file in explorer, right-click it and then unblock it.

    Would you please explain what is meant by "unblock"?

    Thanks.

    Right-click the file, choose properties, then you should see an unblock option if the file has been blocked by the security update.
