visual studio 2010 toolbox reset shows excel and word tabs


Where does a toolbox reset get it's information? 

I installed Office 2010 Primary Interop Assemblies redistributable on windows 7 using visual studio 2010 professional.  Not 100% sure if it's the culprit but now my visual studio 2010 toolbox reset only shows the tabs for "Excel Controls", "Word Controls", "Ribbon Editor", "Dialog Editor", etc....

Things tried:

  •  reset the toolbox and view all and it still only shows these.
  • I can create a new tab and manually add in the tab with items like DataSet so they are there.
  • command line reset
    •      devenv /setup
    •      devenv /resetsettings
  • I've reset the all settings in "Import and Export Settings Wizard".
  • There's visual studio 2005 on the box and the toolbox is fine and exporting settings from there and importing into vs2010 does nothing.
  • Tried repairing vs2010 to no effect.
  • Logged out of the box as my id and logged in as a different id hoping it was something inmy profile, to no effect.
  • Uninstalled o2010pia.msi via add-remove-programs but the readme says it doesn't remove from the GAC (which is verified).
