    Default Trojan Horse - contribute toolbars in Officeapplications

    :mad; re: CS3 Web Premium - full install

    None of the conventional methods of managing toolbars in MS Word (and other MS
    Products) seems to work in eradicating the unwanted Contribute (and to some
    degree, Acrobat) toolbars:
    /view/toolbars/ - deselect contribute toolbar
    /tools/customise - deselect contribute toolbar
    /tools/customise - drag contribute tools from contribute toolbar until
    empty
    All the above appear to work, yet the original Contribute toolbar is present
    again (taking up precious space and throwing toolbars in disarray) the next
    time Word (Excel, Outlook, etc) is loaded.

    When dragging contribute tools from contribute toolbar there is a confirmation
    screen regarding changes to ContributeWordUITemplate.dot - yet i can't find
    this template to remove or edit it.

    Furthermore, what options do i have to remove the Contribute and Acrobat menus
    from the main menu bar in Word?

    Any application that overrides standard procedures to prevent itself from
    being removed is a Trojan Horse as far as I am concerned. This practice is
    worse than arrogance, it is malicious.

    Has anyone managed to eradicate these?

    i should also mention that i tried:
    /tools/tempates and add-ins/ - [remove] contribute
    it reinserts itself when word restarts

    Thanks Thinkink. Renaming c:\...{adobe program folder}...\Adobe Contribute
    CS3\Officeplugin.dll to: Officeplugin.dll.malware
    appears to have eradicated my problem from Excel and Word.

    It has done nothing, however to correct the apparently long-standing policy
    (re: other post(s) you linked) of Adobe to wantonly break other people's coding
    standards and applications.
