Disabling stubborn add-ins in Office 2007

add-ins-state-cannot-change

A top tip from My Digital Life just saved my bacon. If you run add-ins in Outlook, Word, or Excel that you are unable to disable in Tools > Trust Center with this cryptic error message:

“The Connected State of Office Add-Ins Registered in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Cannot Be Changed”

then you simply need to restart the application in Administrator privileges. Not sure how? See My Digital Life for the full resolution.
