I have started to get a message when i exit Word saying do I want to save changes to EZphoto. What is this and how to i remove all the icons for it that have appeared in the toolbar pushing others off it. Thanks

A quick search seems to show that EZ Photo is related to either a scanner or digital camera, although it could be something else.

To remove the new icons, in Word, go to View > Toolbars. There will probably be an entry for EZPhoto, remove the tick and it should be gone.

Sounds as tho you have some malware = do you have spybot s&d, adaware etc= plenty of threads giving various links and they're FREE!

A row of EZP icons appear were the shortcut icons should. Clicking on a down arrow reveals them with many EZP ones. when I click on a EZP icon its launch easy photo but then Word says it can't find the application, but when I close Word the message to save to EZP appears. Unable to untick from View/toolbars.
It may be related in some to Adobe Photoshop software which i have recently installed as the same problemis happening on her laptop. She has uninstalled the software but the problem still persists. Any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks

Another thought - is it related to some software that came with her printer?

It's a possibility which I'll get her to check. Thanks. However I haven't got a printer installed on this computer so where has this beast come from?

I have located from various searches through google that apparantly this ezphoto software which installs itself with photo/scanner type software conflicts with word.Other sites have suggested deleting the files ezpwll32.wll, ezphoto.wll, ezpwll.wll and ezpwlll6.wll. I can't find them, any ideas where they are? Also any advice on removing buttons off the toolbar in word,as nothing I try seems to work. Thanks

Which version of Word is this? If 2003, Tools/Templates and Add-ins and delete from the list. Other versions of Word should be similar.

Word version is 2000

Have found this article in MS database though it does'nt have instructions foe XP users. Am I to presume if I remove the files then the buttons will remove themselves from the toolbar or do I manually have to do it?click here

In tools/templates and add ins there is nothing listed so unable to select ezphoto. Any ideas please.
