Transparent pull-down menus
I am using IE 7.0.6001.18000 on Vista, and some of the pull-down menus (in
particular Favorites and the menu labelled >> to the right of the Page menu)
are transparent (a shadow appears around where the menu should appear, but
the menu itself doesn't). Although I suspect the problem has something to do
with the Google toolbar, the problem persists even if I disable or uninstall
the Google toolbar. It also persists when I reset all IR options (using
Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Reset...). I haven't found any mention of a
similar problem, and of course I cannot just re-install IE on Vista in any
obvious way. Suggestions?

Protected mode
I've just noticed that the problem goes away if Protected Mode is disabled,
and reappears when it is enabled again. A clue, perhaps?

Re: Transparent pull-down menus
Hi,
Start IE7 without add-ons from:
Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
or
Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
If the problem goes away, check for an incompatible add-on.
See: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp
for troubleshooting information.

and
Windows Vista Help- Internet Explorer add-ons frequently asked questions:
http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...f9b7e1033.mspx

Or, the Protected Mode information suggests that a program other than a
browser add-on may be involved.

Re: Transparent pull-down menus
Starting IE7 without add-ons does not solve the problem.
Running IE7 as Administrator DOES solve the problem.
Running IE7 while logged in as another used (Guest) does not solve the
problem.
