  • 1. Text views on webpages - Encoding (Unicode UTF-8)
    All of a sudden my favorite news page,, is all italicized. I have also experenced this at a few other webpages, like google for instanace. Why did the text on these websites all of a sudden change? What is the correct Encoding setting to view pages as they were actually intended to be viewed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I find it very hard to read articles that are in italics. Thanks.
  • 2. smartsearch
    Recently my IE home page has changed to "about:blank" or SmartSearch. I have tried changing this in internet options without success. Norton has failed to detect a virus, and a SpyWare scan didn't show any Spyware. This website seems to be blocking me from typing in a number of web adresses directly into the adress bar, making it impossible to get to the sites. I would be grateful for any help. (I run Windows XP Home ed.)

  • 5. IE Saving login names
    When I connect to one of my URLs which I can report spam I notice that IE saves my login name as well as my login names to my ISP, Hotmail & others. The name I use to login to my spam reporting is not saved. I have tried tools/internet options/content & clicked on "autocomplete" & then clear passwords & forms. The login names were still there. Just as a test I cleared all cookies, history, & temp internet files. Also I ran "WindowWasher" to clear other entries. The info was still there. Any ideas...marvo

Toolbar won't stay locked

The search function in the toolbar won't stay 'unchecked' 
even when I try to lock the toolbars. I've done the 
toolbar regedit clear procedure but it's not helping.

1.IE6 Toolbars won't stay locked

I can't get the toolbars to stay locked in IE6.  They 
appear to lock when I get them how i want them, then right 
click on them and on the menu click on 'Lock the Toolbars'.

They stay locked until the next time I open up IE6 again 
when they're back all over the place.  Anyone able to help?

2.Toolbars won't stay locked

I am currently running IE 6.0 and have 3 toolbars; standard, links ( to my frequently used sites), and "my websearch" (which came with Smiley Central).

For some reason, lately my toolbars keep switching places with each other, even though the VIEW box says they are "locked" and I keep locking the toolbars, but they won't stay where I set them!

Any ideas? It's driving me NUTS!

5.toolbars don't stay locked


I'm using XP home edition / IE 6.  Recently, something strange has begun 

My toolbars are usually locked into a configuration that I prefer. 
However,sometimes when I open a new window, the toolbars are in another 
configuration. I can set the back the way I like it & lock 'em again, but 
eventually they come unlocked again.

(I'm the only user on the computer.)

I've run AdAware & Spybot but that doesn't help ~

I've had the Google Toolbar for a couple years but doubt that's the problem 
as it's always behaved itself in the past, and this problem has been going 
on for maybe a month.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks so much.
