    remove toolbar (2003)

    How do I remove a customized toolbar that does not wish to be deleted? I delete it (Tools>Customize>Toolbars>Delete) The toolbar disappears. However, if I close down Word and then open it up, I see the toolbar again. Is there a solution?
    Thank you very much.

    Have you created the toolbar interactively (using Tools | Customize), or is it created in code when you start Word? Check the VBA code in your Normal.dot and in global templates (if you have them).

    It was in Tools>Customize. Nothing I do can remove this toolbar.

    The toolbar is probably stored in your Normal.dot. Try the following:
    Open Normal.dot directly (it probably lives in Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftTemplates)
    Use Tools | Customize... to delete the toolbar.
    Save Nornal.dot.
    Quit and restart Word to see if it has disappeared.

    I did what you recommended....also renamed Normal.dot to Normal...old. Word rebuilt Normal.dot without the toolbar. Thank you very much. I do appreciate it.

    What toolbar are you trying to remove?
    If it is a third party (like Adobe) then it may be controled by that software.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
