Give Clippy his Walking Papers


Make Clippy go away forever!


This question was answered on July 1, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I'm sure he means well, but Clippy can be a little too informative for my liking In fact, I don't think he's ever been of any real use to me If you want to give Clippy his pink slip, try this:

1 If you're using Office 97, Clippy and friends are located in the \Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Actors The quickest fix is to simply rename the Actors folder - to <i>NoActors</i> for example.

2 If you're using Office 2000, XP, or 2003, open the Control Panel (Start menu and click Control Panel) and double-click Add/Remove Programs.

3 In Windows XP, Me, or 2000, select either Microsoft Office or a specific Office program in the "Currently installed programs" list and click the Change button.

4 Click the Add or Remove button, expand the Office Tools item, select Office Assistant, and then Not Available Confirm your choices and exit.

Hope that helps Have fun and enjoy!
