    Add-in requires password on exit (2002 SP3)

    A couple of years ago there was a problem when exiting Excel if an add-in was loaded and you used an early version of Google Desktop. When you exited Excel, you would get a pop-up box asking you to type in the password of the add-in.

    This is now happening on a PC which does not have Google Desktop. There is an add-in which opens other add-ins. Whenever this add-in is used, which ever add-in was last used comes up on exiting Excel with a pop-up asking for the add-in password. The add-in referenced in the pop-up can be independent of the original add-in which seems to be causing the problem.

    Any ideas?

    Without any clues of the code in those addins, this is very hard to troubleshoot....

    Have you tried checking the registry keys at:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOfficeExcelAddin s
    to see if the LoadBehavior property of any of them is set to 3? If so, set it to 2 and see if that helps.
