|Disable the Office Assistants (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Software > Microsoft Office
Are you annoyed by those office assistants always popping-up when you least expect it? This tweak will let you remove them for good!
Open your registry and find the key below where [ver] is the Office version number ("8.0" = Office 97, "9.0" = Office 2000 and "10.0" = Office XP). Then delete all the values under the key.
System Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\[ver]\Common\Assistant]|
Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
