The ESET Smart Security Antispam toolbar is missing in Microsoft Outlook (8.x and earlier)

If the ESET Smart Security Antispam toolbar is missing from Microsoft Outlook, it may be due to an incorrect installation, a corrupted uninstallation, or other errors in the program.

Verify that the ESET Smart Security Antispam toolbar is enabled

In Microsoft Outlook, click View → Toolbars and make sure that ESET Smart Security is selected.

  • In Outlook 2007: Start Outlook and click Help → Disabled Items. Remove the ESET Smart Security component from the list.

Close Outlook and then start it again. The ESET Smart Security Antispam toolbar should now load correctly. If not, proceed to part II.
