    Removing from Word toolbar (2000 on Windows 2000 Pro)

    My version of Word is slowing down, particularly opening the program. I suspect I have too many toys on the toolbar. How do I remove the Avery label wizard and Adobe's Acrobat from the toolbar and stop them opening with Word?

    Select Tools | Options... and activate the File Locations tab.
    Note the Startup location. This is probably the folder where the add-ins are stored.
    Quit Word.
    Navigate to this folder in Windows Explorer. Move the add-ins out of the Startup folder.

    It might also help to clear your Temp folder.

    Thanks Hans but I tried it and found nothing in the start up folder.

    Another place to look is in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeStartup.

    Or you can use Start | Find... to search for all .dot files on your hard disk to see if you can find the culprits.

    Thanks, Hans. The registry approach looks the best to me. However, it's getting late so I think I'll leave tampering with the registry till tomorrow evening.

    Thanks for your help.
