    Setup:

    WinXP Pro (no service pack installed)
    IE6
    PIII - 800Mhz
    120GB HD
    ATI RAGE PRO 128

    Office XP

    ok here goes:
    installed once Omnipage Pro 11 and ever since that when starting Excel or Powerpoint or opening any *.xls or *.ppt i get 40 Omnipage Menu Links. (see attached picture)

    http://www.sysopt.com/forum/attachment.php?s=&postid=745389 (same with Powerpoint)

    I wasn't able to uninstall Omnipage Pro 11. So i deleted the files and registry settings manually, in hope it will sort out that problem.

    This didn't sort it out !

    However the strange thing is, that Word doesn't display these links.

    anyone who knows more ??
    thx

    p.s. i recently installed Omnipage Pro 12 (it had no effect on this)

    I can think of 2 things you can do:

    1st:
    Go to View/Toolbars/Customize

    Click (and hold) on one of the omnipage entry's and drag it to downwards to a point not on one of the toolbars and let it go (you should see a X appear when you can let go)

    If this goes, delete all other entrys with the same trick

    Restart Excel and see if the stay away

    2nd:
    If they reappear it means that a macro or an add-in is being used to recreate them:
    Check Tools/Add-ins or check the file XLSTART.XLS
    which is normally placed in the directory <officeinstall directory>\Office\XLStart

    well thx for the ideas ..

    tried them but no result

    ad 1)
    i can't move the omnipage entries .. they are connected with the standard entries (file,edit,view ..)

    ad 2)
    i looked in the file/folder and add-ins menu ... it's nothing there

    i really have no clue ..

    thx anyway

    *** EDIT ***
    hA .. WORKING !"!!!
    just to let you all know:

    gajef's idea was initially the right one ...
    but you have to hold the LEFT ALT key while moving and dragging ANY menu link from the top

    with this method i was able to move the 40 omnipage links to another custom bar which i deleted

    you can also move: file,edit,view,extras ... etc.
