Office Assistant Paperclip, get rid of
Help! I want to permanentaly get rid of that irritating paperclip office assistant. I have 30 computers that students use. I have tried right clicking, going to Options and unchecking everything.
Many students know how to get the little guy back and the guy either irritates students by popping up all the time or slows them down because they enjoy playing with him. Thanks for any ideas.

Version?

Sounds like '97.

I believe he is an option to install. Rerun the installation with Office Assistant DEselected.

Do a search on Microsoft's website. I recall that there there is a thread on how to uninstall the office assistant.

Hmmm...I didn't see one, Raphael. Just the one above and the usual lovely workarounds (like right-click and hit hide, LOL).

dog8spam,

I located these instructions. I hope they help.


Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Install/Uninstall tab


Office 97:

Highlight 'Microsoft Office 97'.

Choose the Add/Remove button.

Insert the Microsoft Office 97 CD in the CD-ROM drive and choose OK.

Choose the Add/Remove button.

Clear the desired Office components check box(es).

NOTE: The Office Assistant is located in the Office Tools component of Microsoft Office.

Choose 'Continue'. OK.


Office 2000:

Highlight 'Microsoft Office 2000'.

Choose the 'Add/Remove' button.

Select 'Add or Remove Features'.

In the list box, click the plus sign to the left of Office Tools.

In the expanded list, click the icon to the left of Office Assistant, and select 'Not Available'.

Choose 'Update Now'. OK.
