Every time I open MS Office or Excel (2003) on my machine, the Microsoft Live Add-in toolbar is there. I remove it manually, but it always comes back.

How do I remove it permanently?

There is no way to keep it from coming up unless you uninstall it completely. You can use Revo Uninstaller to sweep it away permanently from your machine.
