This may or not be related to the post I posted earlier, but this is the problem I encounter right now:-

Every time I open the browser it shows the customise Internet explorer 7 settings every time. Some reason it cannot save/store them. Plus when I download Mcafee free site advisor it does not show up anymore nor does Google toolbar.  It's only a guess but perhaps the "restore defaults" has meant I lost the add ons from working.

Please can anyone help

    Greetings Gary !

    Gary, restore defaults should not lose your addons.  If you disabled addons to troubleshoot, this could be the reason that that McAfee and Google Toolbar do not work.  Add them back in Addin Manager, or reinstall these programs.

    As to why you are getting IE7 settings during bootup, this is not normal.  You may have a bad install of IE7.  Uninstall IE7 in the Add/Remove Programs.  Then reinstall IE7 program with antivirus and antispyware disable from running in the background.

    Hope this helps, war1
