I'm sorry - I should have been clearer. I had already done the restart
without activating the extension. That's the only way I could get to Extras.

As I said before, I can't delete the package either with the check box or by
scribbling it. Attempting to click on the Envelope icon while the item is
selected results in an error message (-10011).
