See if this solved thread helps: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=223850&highlight=outlook+toolbar
Ex-Brit, good talking with you again. I'm only here when I have problems.
Well, I tried _everything_ in that thread and the behavior of the McAfee\Outlook 2007 toolbar\addin is the same.
I'm open to suggestions but I think I tried everything you have to offer.
Click the link for Technical Support FAQ/Search in my signature and uder the Search tab enter outlook toolbar and see if any of the answers there help.
Ex_Brit, I narrowed the search even further by using 'Outlook 2007 toolbar McAfee Vista' and came across many 'hits' but none specifically addressing my situation.
Am I the only person to have this problem?
I have no idea, I don't use Anti-Spam myself as I rely on an external spam filter server.
I will post a question in our own section.
Ex_Brit, I suppose I could uninstall everything (McAfee that is) and reinstall it.
If you want to give me the drill for Security Center 9 I'll give that a shot.
Thanks, Dave Horne
I did ask for help but it seems to be absent for the time being.
The procedure is no different from what we always post:
1. Uninstall all McAfee programs through "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel".
2. Use the MCPR tool, see this article: How to remove supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe). This will remove all McAfee remnants from your computer. (you must have Windows Vista, XP or 2000 SP4 to use this tool)
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one!
In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site.
Ex_Brit, I uninstalled McAfee, reinstalled it and I see the same exact glitch.
In order for me to see the McAfee toolbar\add-in in Outlook 2007, I have to first click Tools and then Options. As soon as I click Option, the toolbar magically appears. It's quite possible that if I didn't do that the program would still work in the background to protect me but I don't know that for sure.
I'm not losing any sleep over this but if you stumble onto any information, I"d like to hear it just the same.
Thanks! Dave Horne
I have asked, hopefully someone will answer.
