System Restore/I.E.Tool bar

Hello all,

My system restore never sets check points.Yes it is turned on. Even when I have created restore points it does not keep them. I have tried settings from min. to max with no luck? There are no bold dates and only one restore point at any given time. Any suggestions?

Ever since installing the new XP SP2, Yesterday I have a new IE tool bar at the bottom of my monitor. It is not the regular tool bar which has the auto hide, clock, start ect... I am able to use auto hide on my menu bar and my lower tool bar but cannot figure out how to lose the IE bar? Nothing opens up on a right click? The bar shows when there are pop ups? I have a laptop so its very annoying.

Thanks very much, Daniel

If it appears when popup are shown, it's time to read some popup related articles:

Thanks Cetin and all, I have figured out the way to descibe the problem. Well not really a problem just bothersome. If I click onto "view" and uncheck "Status bar" I lose the bar at the bottom. This is desirable since I use a laptop. However I also always use "Full Screen" and when using "Full Screen" I get the status bar back. Is there any way of not having the status bar in full screen mode. Thanks,Dan

From your description your IE Status Bar is properly working. For the Full Screen anomaly, read the following excerpt regarding SP2:


A Blocked "add-on" icon appears in the Internet Explorer status bar when a Web page attempts to "run" an ActiveX control that is disabled or blocked because its publisher is untrusted. You can double click the icon to open Manage Add-ons and change the ActiveX settings if required. (The status bar icon is accompanied by a balloon tip the first five times it appears.)

So, you'll have to find yourself the culprit. From IE, click Tools, Manage Add-ons and try disabling those items one by one.


Good Luck,

Cetin
