As the title say, I have a little issue with the sl2bb.xlam script.

I delete it by mistake from my download folder and now, whenever I open an excel file I get a very annoying notification window that reminded me of it...

It basically says "We´re sorry, we haven´t found C:/Users/User/Download/xk2bb.xlam. Might of been because you move it, delete it, or change its name?"

How can get rid of this notification window?

Cheers and be well!

Try File > Options > Add-ins and remove it from the list.
If you have downloaded it again and put it back in the same folder then you will possibly have to remove it from the list to un-register it, then add it again.
I recall another user having similar problems when they moved it to a different folder but without deleting one of my own add-ins to cause the problem I can't recall exactly what happens.

How do I exactly remove it from the list? I don´t see any button to delete, exclude, or anything similar.

In the Add-ins window (File > Options > Add-ins) that @jasonb75 explained, you should see the Manage drop-down control at the bottom of the list. Select Excel Add-ins in the drop-down and click the Go... button.

It will open the following dialog box (you can also get there by clicking on the Excel Add-ins command in the Developer ribbon tab):

Deselect Xl2Bb. As soon as you deselect the add-in, and since it doesn't exist where it is supposed to be, you will see the following message:

Click on the Yes button. And you are done.

Also, I suggest using the XLSTART folder method to install the core add-ins to avoid these troubles. It is explained in the XL2BB article.
