Ie8 Bing / Msn Toolbar


I recently updated to ie8 and added bing/msn toolbar, first of all i have two ie8 regular ie8 and 1e8 (64 bit) first down load i used regular, ie8. It installed every ok, then i open ie8(64) no toolbar. So down loaded from this ie8(64) bit browser, it tells me it is already installed, so i restart pc but no toolbar. Then i down load toolbar again, this time it does  allows me re down load again, though upon restarting pc, no toolbar in ie8 (64) bit aggain in regular ie i have bing toolbar. I also upgraded vista to include sp 2 earlier today and upgraded ie from ie7 to ie8.

Should i uninstall and try again? And must i down load for each ie or should install for both ie? I used this page to download toolbar http://www.microsoft.com/toolbar/install-free-toolbar.aspx also, whats the difference between both ie's or should i delete one of them?

Msn & Bing Always There When Starting Ie8

Msn.com & bing always there when starting ie8 even tho i always reset it to hotmail! I have a compaq presario 2200 laptop with intel celeron m processor running wxp and ie8 with 1 gig ram. I have set the home page to hotmail and deleted or moved all the msn related favorites in the toolbar several times. No matter how many times i do this ie8 opens with msn.com as the home page with a 2nd tab open for bing - and all those @#%*ing favorites links have returned to the toolbar!What the heck is microsoft doing?  They're shoving microsoft related sites down my throat! How can i fix this - or must i resort to deleting ie8 and using firefox only?

Bing Toolbar Download Has Stopped Search

Bing toolbar download has stopped search from opening a new page when queried (as i want). I've tried every setting i can find regarding how to open a new window with a new link or a new search and they all seem to be set correctly - but this won't work with any of the search engines on my tool-bars (and it did before the download). They always open in the same window which is a major pain in the rear end.

I tried to system restore before i installed the new toolbar but then i had problems with the toolbar that used to be there (essentially an older version of the same toolbar) that said i needed to reinstall it. Can anyone please help me get a separate window to open when i execute an ie search?  I'm comfortable with windows and if i need to make changes to the registry that's perfectly fine.

Ie8 Toolbar / Add-on Cannot Be Removed From List

I am trying to remove the listing of an add-on in ie8 os is xp mce 32 bit. One of my kids installed a toolbar for a game they play but i didn't want it on my comp so, in the add-ons list there are 2 listings for it , both having the same information. I have uninstalled the program, disabled it in the add-ons list and tried right clicking it in the list for more info to click remove but the "remove" button is greyed out. I also removed the registry key associated with it but it is still showing in the list. I also looked for the .dll but it is not present in the system-32 folder. Any suggestions? This is what shows when i click more info for both of the listings.

Msn Live Space

I have a problem with the msn live space, first of all does anyone know of a way to completely close it? Secondly ive turned everything to show to just me in the privacy section yet random people are still able to see which people have been added to my network, if i remove them from my network they are also removed from my contact list too which seems stupid, is there a way to have them on my contact lost but not show in my network on my profile, this is starting to drive me crazy, any help would be greatly received.

No Flash Player With Ie Or Msn Browser

Flash player quit working with ie and msn explorer on my toshiba laptop in late '08 but worked fine with safari and firefox, so i didn't miss it much. I recently upgraded to win7 and assumed that would finally allow me to get my flash player back working with msn and ie, but no joy. Any ideas how i can resolve, i'm paying for qwest msn but can't watch youtube or any of the other vids requiring flash and it's kinda annoying. Adobe infers it might be a registry problem.

Mailto Protocol Msn Mail

I have a brand new computer with windows 7. I have used msn premium (msn explorer) for years. I noticed that on the internet if i click an e-mail link i got a no client error message. I see that this is not an uncommon problem. I went to my default settings and made windows live mail the default, as my msn mail is just a prettier version of hotmail. So now when i click on an e-mail link to send a message, a windows live mail window opens, ready for me to write and send a message.

But i've always had an msn mail window open in the past. Should i just live with this? I've been using msn mail for years, and still do: i'm still using msn explorer and use msn mail for everything, it is essentially hotmail, the only glitch is this mailto protocol business.

And now that i've set windows live mail as default, i noticed that i can't undo it. The boxes won't uncheck, but this doesn't seem to affect me in any way so far except the mailto protocol. How to make msn mail open when i click an e-mail link? Why can i not undo the default settings?

Ie And Bing - Can't Download

I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Blocked By Bing From Going To Amazon.com

I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit os factory installed on my hp high performance pavilion elite. This is a 64-bit system. I am experiencing frequent instances of bing coming up and blocking my attempts to go to web pages i select. One instance is trying to go to amazon.com: bing page comes up and blocks the attempt. Javascript is mentioned but not explained. I go to the sun web page to download java and am blocked trying to download 64-bit java. I am possibly an intermediate user and certainly not an expert and i am confused and frustrated.

Another problem with bing coming up to block is my attempt to download pictures as screen-savers from webshots. Each time i try to download a picture i am shunted off to bing! I don't understand. How can i get rid of bing, so i can use the internet as before?

Msn Email Address Or Password Incorrect

Just purchased a new computer that has windows 7 home premium 64 bit installed on it. I use msn as my home page. Every time i start up or reboot the system and try to get to my home page it asks me to put in my email address and password (despite the fact that i previously, and each subsequent time, checked the box to remember my email address and password). Then, to add insult to injury, it keeps on coming back with the error that email address or password is incorrect. I try a few more times with same results and then all of a sudden it works one time. Where do i go to fix this total annoyance?

Bing Cashback Program Troubles

I purchased a laptop on overstock.com on july 17th using the bing cashback program and paypal. Bing claimed i was eligible for 30% off my purchase. I have received no cashback. I have tried contacting bing support and am always directed to a dead page. I am hoping someone can provide me with some help as to someone whom i can ask several questions about. My decision to purchase the laptop was based on the sale price and i honestly cannot afford the laptop at full price. I sincerely look forward to someone offering some advice.

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

How To Use Bing Dynamic Rss Theme?

Windows 7 theme problem - bing dynamic (rss theme)i have used many of the new windows 7 themes without problems, but i can't get the rss theme called bing dynamic to work. When i download it and open it, all that's in the theme is the empty theme (no images), so it leaves my desktop black. I thought it might start working after waiting a minute for it to download an image, but it's been over 30 minutes and still no image. It doesn't have the rss symbol on the theme in my list like it does on my friend's computer (where it does work), but for the picture album, it has the right location: a web address for a theme server. How do i get it to work?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Missing Toolbar

Running vista sp1& ie8 normal startup of hotmail in ie8 shows a window with several toolbars at the top. One of these bars contains the new tabs, ie history and several tools icons such as print, page, safety, tools, etc. Within the last day this toolbar is missing only when a hotmail window is opened. The original ie8 home window is normal with all expected toolbars available. On the hotmail window i have right clicked on the available barand selected "customize / add or remove commands" and see that the missing icons are selected. I have searched theforums and found a similar item (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/962963). This did not fix my problem. Any advice?

Keyboard Language Toolbar

I agree with the query:  there is an easy route to removing the language bar (i.e. The way to control the keyboard language) in windows 7, but not to restore it. Windows 7 help says that one is to do it via toolbar selection after right-clicking the taskbar. Unfortunately, that is wrong: there are only 3 toolbar on offer in that pane:  address, links and desktop. And btw:  might i suggest that the support engineer remove the response from "rockmoibebe", as it does not solve the problem.

Applications Running On Toolbar

Whatever happened to having applications that are running be on the system tray to the right of the toolbar? I have my main aim buddy list sitting on my toolbar, and on windows xp, 2000, 98, 95 etc etc, it was always to the right in the system tray. I don't like having it on my toolbar, i feel it really clutters things up for me. Is there a way to move it to the system tray to the right? And if so, how do i do it? There's other things i'd like to move over there, windows messenger also being one of them. Thanks - dave

After transfer i am trying to delete files from the rw disk so that i can reuse it, but it won't let me delete files from it. Pos-up say i need administrator approval and everyone else. I am the only user and logger in as administrator - don't know who everyone else might be, k but i'd like to salvage my rw disks for future use?

Or am i missing something?

Docking Center Toolbar

I don't remember what it was called, but when i first started my new computer there used to be a "toolbar" that was located at the top of the desktop and you could add icons to it for a what i would call a "quick launch. " The recycling bin was there, a launch for email, office applications, settings, internet, etc. I got rid of it somehow and want it back. Can someone help me? Tell me what it's called and how to restore it?

Change Width Of Favorites Toolbar

When i open my favorites toolbar, it appear on the left side of my screen (where it should), but only as a narrow sliver. When i drag my cursor over the right edge of the favorites tool bar i do get a double-headed arrow, but it wont let me drag the favorites window to give a wider column-width.

Also, when i try to 'click' the double-arrow on the toolbar's right edge, the right edge of the toolbar disappears and/or shifts to the left edge of the explores window (so i'm not sure if i'm actually selecting or 'clicking' on anything) - when i let go of the mouse button, the right edge of the favorites toolbar returns to its too-narrow config. Any suggestions? I'm also not sure how/why my favorites toolbar shrank to its present too-narrow column-width (i don't think i set it that narrow - if i need it that narrow, i just turn it off)

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Flashing When Use Ie8

There appears to be some instability with ie8 when i browse since i have loaded windows 7 rc. I also think that the problem may have started when i did a deletion of temp files and old vista files. I really love the new windows 7 rc so far especially compared to windows vista ultimate. Also, what is available for the new windows touch as far a hardware and will i need anything else to accompany it that is not included in windows 7 rc? My computer is a dell lattitude 131l with a athelon 64 bit processor.

What is the real differences or advantages with the 32 bit and the processors and the 64 bit processor? Which should i really use? I have both rc copies on separate disks with their product key so either one can be installed.

Ie8 Not Working

Until friday night ie8 was fine. Now it won't do anything. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, spybot scanned, ccleaned, uninstalled, reinstalled, followed numerous links to different 'help' pages on microsoft, tried a one care scan (but that won't work because my other browser is chrome). I can't do that run ie no add ons thing because it isn't there to click. I did get to the "cannot display this page. " Once in safe mode but that's all.

There is nothing wrong with my connection on virgin cable because every other program requiring internet works fine. I don't use any third party toolbars because my netbook screen would be impossible to use (it's hard enough now). Desperate for a solution as work on my websites is stacking up and i need to get into office live to update.
