Toobar Hell
OK....It's not really hell........relative to what's going on around the
world, but I've noticed that once in a while I'll open IE7 and the Links
button (usually just a button that open up 'Links') will instead spread its
folders and shortcuts all over the toolbar. A real mess! I tried unlocking
the toolbar and moving things back as they were, re-locking the bar, and
then closing IE7. But when I reopen it, the same thing happens with the
links spreading themselves all over the toolbar once again! Besides a system
restore, what can be done to get that 'links' button to behave?

Thanks,

Oreally

Re: Toobar Hell
Problems can result when add-ons you have installed, such as browser
toolbars, are damaged or conflict with Internet Explorer.

Run Internet Explorer 7 in 'No Add-Ons' mode:

If you have Vista: Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start Search
box > click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)

If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)

Alternatively, you can create a shortcut on your desktop with the
following target path:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

If the problem does not occur in 'No Add-Ons' mode, then it's being
caused by one of the add-ons that you have installed. We can show you
how to identify which add-on is causing the problem.

Hi Sasha,

Check for updates for all of your Toolbar Addons (google, yahoo, and live).
The Toolbar layout hijack is well known and most (but not all) toolbar
vendors have updated their toolbars to correct the problem.

Regards.
