I am creating a configurable extension for ArcGIS desktop 10.1

I am not using Add-on , so please don't suggest add-on.

How can I disable some toolbars and commands, when the extension is disabled? I want to disable users from adding toolbars from the "Customize" interface in ArcMap, when the extension is disabled?

Is there a way even to hide the toolbar from the "Customize" interface of GIS desktop when the extension is disabled?

Did you return false when ICustomizationFilter.OnCustomizatioEvent is called, passing esriCEShowCustDlg? – Kirk Kuykendall Mar 21 '13 at 19:57
