Default How to permanently remove (prevent reinstallation of) Outlook add-ins?

As an example, I've removed Acrobat's "Send and Track" add in a DOZEN times now by going to File > Add-ins > COM Add-ins.

However, it keeps coming back!

How can I prevent it, and ideally any other add-ins, from being reinstalled?



I'm open to folder or registry hacks -- anything that will stop this monster in its tracks.

1.Open the Outlook desktop client.



2. Go to the File tab.



3. Click Options.



4. In the Add-ins section on the left, choose COM Add-ins and press Go.



5. Check the Add-in you want to remove and press the Remove button at the right

Yes, that's how to remove it, but how do I make sure they don't become installed again with the next Windows update?

They keep coming back!
