By standss Friday, June 4th, 2010

Outlook Addins are an essential productivity tool to most business users of Outlook. You may however find that you are running some unnecessary addins that you are not even aware of. Disabling or removing those addins can help speed up your system.

You can turn addins on or off from the Com Addins screen.

To display the Com Add-ins screen in Outlook 2010, click File-Options. Click Addins. Com Addins should already be selected in the Manage drop-down.  Click the Go button to display the Com Add-ins dialog box.

To display the Com Add-ins screen in Outlook 2007, click Tools-Trust Center-Addins. Com Addins should already be selected in the Manage drop-down.  Click the Go button to display the Com Add-ins dialog box.

To display the Com-Addins screen in Outlook 2000/2002/2003, click Tools->Other->Advanced Options->COM Add-ins,

You can turn off addins that you are not using by removing the ticks next to them or by selecting them and then clicking the Remove button.

Note: If you had downloaded and installed an addin that you no longer need then the best solution is to simply uninstall the addin from the Control Panel (as you would uninstall any other software).
