Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar this is an ongoing problem. I have spoken to support at Microsoft and they
seem to just brush it off. The only way to get the address bar back is to
close out and restart IE7 until it appears. Any suggestions? No add-on mode
doesn't work and neither does F 11

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar I suggest uninstall IE7 via add/remove, then reinstall it with your AV
disabled.
If your AV *was* disabled when you first installed it, then don't bother
reinstalling it after you get IE6 back. That is, until the patches come out,
or you go to Vista, in which case IE6 is not an option - you've got IE7.

I apologize for not being among those who recommend firefox here.
I think it doesn't do soft hyphens. IE does soft hyphens. I like soft
hyphens.

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar Michael,

When SP2 came out, the OE newsgroups looked almost as bad at this one. We
quickly realized that most of the people that had problems were either using
Automatic-Updates, or downloaded SP2 manually. Either of which did not have
their AV turned off. Removing SP2 and downloading it again with their AV off
resolved problems for a great majority of the people. That was one of my
*Canned* replies and I used it successfully for a long time.

I haven't read every post here, but I have been looking for someone to
suggest what you just did. As an MVP, it is tough to advise people to use
Notify, but not use Automatic Updates, for obvious reasons, so I don't. But
IMHO, you should disable your AV before you download *anything* to insure a
clean install.

I would bet that a good percentage of posters with problems would see a
difference following those instructions. Of course, that wouldn't make a
difference to those that are just pissed about the changes with IE7.

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar Ya start out with a couple of paragraphs that make a little sense. I do think, however, that if
disabling AV is all *that* important for a MS update to function, the install should check for
active AV and ask that it be disabled.

Then you blow all your good remarks with your last, ignorant, condescending sentence.

I can't speak for people that do not like some of the changes in IE7. I had
nothing to do with it and there are a few things I don't like about it. I
don't feel my last sentence was condescending at all.

Many people are upset with the changes, but changes have nothing to do with
problems.

As far as disabling your AV when downloading a program, or update, this is
nothing new.

When I was young and foolish and ignorant to know that McAfee AV was a total
disaster for anyone using Outlook Express, second mistake only to Norton,
the one thing that caught my eye was the fact that when McAfee downloaded an
aotomatic update, they remotly disabled their AV program while it wad going
on.

And I agree. MS should develop the ability to turn of your AV when
downloading and installing any update.

I am only a volunteer as all MVPs are. None of us are employed by MS. So I
am only here to give the best advice I can. It is your choice to do what you
want to do.

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar You return to IE6 when you uninstall IE7. I suppose updates keeps
bugging you then to install IE7, but you should be able to tell it not to.

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar Bruce,

I'm on the backup computer while a trial anti-virus does an
initial scan of the main box. When IE6 came out the Internet
was less afflicted than it is now with filth, scams and malice.

Gmail's spam filter is excellent. Steve Cochran taunted me into
posting with an unmunged address, and I get away with it by
not posting all that much. You can just email me if you want.

Internet Explorer / IE >> I can't see no address bar Sandi, I'm not sniping I'm giving him the only way to fix the issue. As you
know ie7 doesn't recognize any of the normal addins just like it doesn't even
understand uuencode. That's why you told him to run in no addins mode. The
problem with your suggestion of doing that doesn't fix his problem. He needs
his addins and the only way for him to get back to a productive mode is to
UNINSTALL IE7
