This is caused by having your display properties (Themes, Appearance) set to 'Windows Classic'. Resetting them to Windows XP fixes it - You can then change it back to Classic again if you wish and it will display properly

HOW TO ADDA FAVOUTITES TAB ON IE 11 AS FOUND IN IE8


If you right-click in the toolbar area (at the top where the favorite bar USED to be) you will see a small pop up with a few options. Click "Favorites Bar" and that should do the trick.

Alternatively, while in IE press the ALT key one time to reveal the Menu Bar. Select View > Toolbars > Favorites Bar

Hope that helps! adda-favoutites-tab-ie-11-as-found-in-vqnzrvnqlx14j4uj04fm0vdy-3-0.jpg adda-favoutites-tab-ie-11-as-found-in-vqnzrvnqlx14j4uj04fm0vdy-3-2.jpg

I have removed Bandoo Media now but how do I remove or stop ask.com appearing as my search engine when I open Internet Explorer?


Which version of IE are you using? In IE 10, click on the Gear symbol on the right of the URL line (or Tools in the Menu bar if open), select the Manage Add-ons option. If these are hidden, press Alt+T to access the Menu bar and Tools. Under the Search Providers, you can change the default search provider. You can also remove Ask.com from that list. Also check under Toolbars and disable the Ask toolbar if it is present.

If your homepage has been changed, go to Internet Options under the Gear. In the General tab, reset your homepage.

I believe these steps worked in IE8 and 9. I'm not sure about the older versions of IE.

If the settings change again, you may have some sort of rootkit or other malware present. Try Malwarebyte Anti-malware to remove the problem.

I hope this helps.

Talktalk toolbar will only disable - I want to enable


Which internet browser are you running you might have to update it
or

Internet Explorer includes a toolbar that allows you to browser the Internet or perform different functions in your browser.


The toolbar allows you to navigate web pages, add browser add-ons such as pop-up blockers, save and print pages and more.


If you are unable to see the toolbar or components you want to use, enable them quickly using these simple steps and guidelines.


Click the Windows "Start" menu and click "Internet Explorer" to launch your web browser.


Click the "Tools" menu located on the top and click "Menu bar" if you want to view the menu bar.


Alternatively, press the "Alt" key to display the File menu.


Click the "View" menu, select "Tool bars" and click the "Menu bar" tool you want to display the menu bar.


If you want to display a different toolbar, select it


hope this helps

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.

My pc running slow


First, open your Internet Options. Delete all temp files and history files.

CC Cleaner is a great free tool to do this and more. Download and install. Run it and clean everything it finds.

I delted toolbars to make my window bigger and now I can't get the toolbars back. I don't have anything to click on - just the windows that are open.


The Firefox "menu bar" includes dropdown menus for various tasks (including "File", "Edit", etc.). If the menu bar does not display, press the "Alt" key (if you are using Windows). That will restore the menu bar temporarily. To restore it permanently, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Menu bar

The Firefox "navigation toolbar" includes the "back", "forward", "reload" buttons, and the address bar (where you type a web address). If the navigation bar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Navigation toolbar

The Firefox "bookmarks toolbar" displays frequently used bookmarks. If the bookmark toolbar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Bookmarks toolbar

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.

MY E8 IS VERY SLOW PLEASE HELP I AM USING WINDOS XP AND ITS VERY SLOW FPR BROWSING. MY NAME IS FAISAL EMAIL IS faisal_hijary@hotmail.com faisalalhijary@yahoo.com


I found that my IE8 slowed down because of BHO's that got into my system.

BHO's or Browser Helper Objects are IE8 Additons that are sometimes voluntarily added like Yahoo Search, or Google Toolbar, and sometimes not voluntary. BHO's cannot always be uninstalled or removed.
Two things you can try:

(These operations can be performed 'on the fly' so you can do them now as you're reading.)

1) Right Click your mouse on the empty space along the Menu Bar, (just to the right of the "Help" Menu. This will show a list of IE8 Menu bar additions.
In the list, a check mark can be added or removed to open or close each option. Try removing any unnecessary bars by uncheking them. (The Menu Bar is necessary so leave that one on)
This may speed things up, if so, you're good.

In the case of BHO's you can try the management console. It's a hidden feature.
2) First follow option one and Enable the Status Bar by clicking it till there is a check mark beside it.

Second with the Status bar showing, (at the bottom of the window, you'll see slightly defined boxes at the bottom. (About nine of them)
The third box is the BHO management tool, double click it to pop up the BHO Management too.
This will list all your BHO's, clicking on each will display in the bottom pane info about that particular BHO and provide controll buttons to disable or enable it.
Right clicking the BHO's in the list will give you the same controll options.

Only AntiViurs BHO's are truely relevant, but you can experiment and see the different effects.
This worked for me, hope it works for you too.

Note: AVG takes several days to settle in after it's first installed; it's behind the scenes operations make internet browsing slow for a little while but eventually this goes away.

Cheers,
Richard.
