Tip & How-To about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Got an annoying toolbar in IE that you just can't remove ?

Then this is for you it's a standalone program that can be integrated into IE8 soyou can use it throught the tools, it's called Toolbar Cop v3.4, dont be put off it's not a cheap piece of freeware it will allow you to remove programs like Bugnosis very hard to budge without this. Thanks Rahmesh this is his site needs a bit of updating though the download link does not work on the authors site however you can get it here


ToolbarCop is a browser extensions manager which can disable or eliminate the following browser add-ons selectively from Internet Explorer v6-v8 even when there is not uninstall or remove function in the IE8 Manage Add-ons oprions;

•Browser Helper Objects (BHO)
•Standard Toolbar buttons
•Context menu Extensions
•Download managers
•Protocol Handlers
•Horizontal / Vertical Explorer Bars (side-search bars)
•Startup applications originating from RUN registry keys.

I reccomend that you create a folder called toolbarcop in program files then copy the file into it then open the program and then add the functionality to IE8 so you can best use it.

I frequently get a Goggle tool bar notifier error message. It appears to stall the loading process until it is acknowledged. how do I elimanate this problem

Go into your control panel to add remove programs and uninstall it. Then go online and install the latest Google toolbar. When you do the search for the latest toolbar include your browser in the search. Example: Google toolbar for IE8, or Google toolbar for Firefox (version), etc...This will insure compatibility.

cannot find the "link" toolbar

In IE8 click Tools->Toolbars->Customize. In the left list box "Available toolbar buttons" select "send link by email" and click "add" in the middle. Close the dialog box and restart IE8. You will see link toolbar option under "Page" tool bar.

I have installed IE8. I am getting the follow message'' raised unhandled exeption in the third party moudle. How do I fix it?

One of your "add-on" modules (Google or McAfee or Norton or Yahoo or other "toolbar") is incompatible with IE8.

Click: START
Click: Control Panel
Click: Add/Remove Programs
Select and "remove" the toolbar.

Keep removing toolbars, and keep trying IE8, until it works.

"Internet Explorer has has stopped working..."

After installing IE8 on vista I kept getting msg Internet Explorer has stopped working - continually looping thru this message.

Solution for me was.
End IE with task manager - needed to do a couple of times.
Then from control panel -> programs -> manage addons I disabled all add ons and then IE started OK. Then by process of elimination stated enabling add on until failed again.

In my case it was the skype addon that was causing IE to fail. Leaving it disabled has allowed IE8 to function.
