Suddenly after months with, as far as I know, no changes, the paper clip assistant appears everytime I want to send an email from Outlook.

How can I kill this thing? Drowning might damage the computer.

This Microsoft article describes how to modify or remove the Office Assistant.

From this answer:

Go to Add/Remove Programs, choose Office and click the Change button. You'll see the different Office features, and you want to uninstall the Office Assistant feature.

+1. I still had to do a number of searches to find out where the Assistant was, but I believe I have found how to do it. If it is gone over the next day or so, I'll accept your answer. Thanks. – Xavierjazz May 1 '10 at 2:12
