Deleting Add-Ons IE7

I can disable add-ons. However, the delete button is grayed out. How do I
delete some of the add-ons that I have disabled?

Thanks

Mike

[To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.]

Create Mobile Favorite => Installed by MS ActiveSync; used to sync with
handheld devices; uninstallable via Add/Remove Programs, if desired

CitiUSBrowserHelper Class => BHO (Browser Helper Object) needed (apparently)
to access your CitiBank account online; most BHOs are listed in Add/Remove
Programs; I'd leave it be myself if I had need to access my account online

Diagnose [Connection] Problems => from KB914440, installed via Windows
Update or manually; I /think/ installing IE7 disables it; Don't worry about
it

Research => Added by MS Office

Windows Messenger => See http://kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_messenger.htm for
tips on disabling or removing

DriveLetterAcess => "Direct Media Access" module belonging to Sonic or
Hewlett-Packard/Veritas DLA (Disk Letter Assignment ) packet writing
software (source: http://www.castlecops.com/tk321-DriveLetterAccess.html).

Wonder why I have two Create Mobile Favorite entries? In any event, I do
not want to uninstall Activesync since I use it. I looked for all these in
the ADD/REMOVE and did not find them. Since I have them all disabled they
are not doing anything. I was just trying to clean things up.

Thanks

Mike

Hey guyz .. i want to Delete an add-on but the Delete option is grayed on it.

The add-on is OeXiTndF.. or something like that. it is also appearing in the
Context Menu of Internet Explorer. i think its a Spyware or Virus kind of

Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these

For quite a few people it's by installing programs like Messenger Plus,
whose ads for malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince
you that you owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.

If you can determine with which program that the addon is associated, you
may be able to uninstall the program via Add Programs etc.

You might want to check the registry to see what registry keys are
associated with the addon.

For example, I have a addon titled password manager xp

A search of the registry shows

,---- [Registry]
| HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F0BD2AEF-6A48-42DC-85CE-F4C335C59B5E}\InprocServer32
| shows a default of C:\PROGRA~1\PASSWO~1\PMHelper.dll
| and
| C:\Program Files\Password Manager XP\PMHelper.dll
| which leads to the key
| HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Fill form
| using Password Manager XP
| and most useful for uninstalling are the entries for
| HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\Password
| Manager XP
'----

Note that I am suggesting just using the registry to investigate the source
of the addon, not to remove it (done by professionals, etc.).

It might give you a bit more knowledge about that specific addon.

HTHs

RE: Deleting Add-Ons IE7

As far as I can see Mike has not got a answer to his question.

Is there a way of deleting add-ons that dont register uninstall info into
the registry, that don't install an ActiveX control, a simple Yes or No
answer will suffice, perhaps with a comment as to whether IE8 addresses the
issue.

Thanks - urbane.tiger
