Excel and Powerpoint are driving me crazy - 40 Omnipage Menu Links

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.
