I have Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 PC. I have got the latest versions of both Outlook and Windows installed.

I have various 'Add-ins' installed. They were working fine. However, in the last few months, all of a sudden, every few days, they become removed from my Outlook. I often notice a few days later that they are not there in the tabs at the top of Outlook 2016 - especially after it is restarted - and then I have to manually add it by going to the “Add-ins” section within my Outlook Options.

I have manually re-added them as Active Add-ins about 50 times in the last few months.

Because the Add-ins constantly become “Inactive Applications” it renders the programs more or less worthless for me.
What can be done to stop the programs becoming Inactive please?

Thank you very much. I greatly appreciate your co-operation.
