  • 1. Cant access Internet Options off Tools menu
    Today, when I tried to access Internet Options off the Tools menu, I get an error message to the effect that "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Contact your system admininstrator." Since my userid *is* the system administrator, this is a bit strange. Could it be from one of those innumerable "windows updates" I've been installing over the last few months/years? I haven't tried to access this item in some time, so I can't say when it started. I certainly don't know what I could have selected to disallow this Version of IE is 6.0.2800.1106, 128-bit security, SP1, and all updates installed.
  • 2. .jpgs saving as .bmps
    For some reason, most .jpgs that I have been encountering that I wanted to save to my computer will only save as a bitmap (.bmp) instead. I know the file is a .jpg, it even says it is in the url, so why can i, all of the sudden, no longer download them as j-pegs?
  • 3. Lost IE 6 Address Bar
    I have lost my Address Bar and have tried the following! 1. Right Click on address bar verify "Address" is checked. 2. RC address bar uncheck "Lock Toolbar" check "Address" check "Lock Toolbar". Still do not have an Address Bar. 3. "Unlock Toolbar" and mover vertical bar at left up, down, sideways. Still no Address Bar. 4. Ran Spybot, Adware and CWShredder. Removed spyware. Re- Boot still no Address Bar. 5. Ran IE6 Update with no luck. I have run out of ideas, can anyone HELP! Thanks,
  • 4. Refresh sound
    Is there a way to suppress the clicking sound when a page autorefreshes? thanks
  • 5. Is it possible to view pictures smaller in IE?
    I have a user that has shortcuts to pictures on our website(intranet). The pictures are much larger than the screen resolution is set for, so only a portion of the picture is seen. Scroll bars must be used to see the rest of the picture. Is it possible to resize the picture, or the view of it, in Internet explorer. If this is not the case, then is it possible to change a setting that will allow, say Paint or some other viewing program, to show the picture instead of IE. Thanks in advance. Gordon

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.
