How do I get rid of the list of disabled/obsolete/duplicate plugins I no longer want?

Posted

O/S = XP (uptodate) I have various disabled plugins that are either invalid/duplicates/not wanted that I would like to remove from the display list of plugins. Is there a way to do this?

For example: I have a disabled plugin for Microsoft Office 2003. I no longer use Office but the plugin still appears in my list of plugins.

Thanks in advance for your help
