Add-ons like the Google tool bar now disabled when IE 7 opened fron e-mail link

Is there any way to change the new default behaviour whereby IE now opens with add-ons disabled if you open from an e-mail link?

This only started happening about a week ago. I will have to stop using IE - I can't live without my Google toolbar.
PLease read this carefullly I am not asking how to enable/disable individual add-ons. This is a blanket disabling done by IE when you acccess from an e-mail link. Microsofts help says you need to access fro myour desktop to get add-ons. See this copied from help.:

" Why am I getting a message saying I'm running without add-ons when I start Internet Explorer?
This message appears when Internet Explorer is opened with add-ons disabled. To run Internet Explorer normally (with add-ons turned on), make sure to select Internet Explorer on the Start menu and do not click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

In IE
Tools | Internet Options | Advanced Tab | Browsing Section

Make sure the "Enable Third-party browser extensions" is checked on

IE goes into the mode you describe when it is started with the -extoff flag:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"  -extoff

Enable third party extensions is already checked.

Regarding the switch. The blocking only occurs when you access IE from an Outloook link. This also ties in with the MS help I have pasted. For some reason Outlook (I'm using 2007) has just started doing this.  I have not added any switches.

I have changed my default browser to firefox - didn't want to be there you go, this opens with the Google search box from e-mails . Microsoft are obviously  doing a good job trying to stop people using IE.

What happens if you have IE running and then you click on the emailed link? I'm thinking it should open up in a new tab in the running IE.

It is by no means a solution but a troubleshooting step

If I do this - it opens in a new window - add-ons disabled.

I can't replicate the problem - if you like uninstall IE7, it will revert you to IE6. Try IE6 and see if you get the same. Reboot and reinstall IE7. Or you could just stick with firefox - I like your comment about MS - lol

I assume you tried  "Reset all zones to default level" under the security tab?

Thanks for this. Yesterday I needed to install SP2 for Access so I also updated to IE 8 while I was there and thought I would see what happened to this. This opens fines with the Google tool bar.

I hadn't reset all zones to the default level - mainly because I hadn't changed the security for so long. Now I've installed 8 I can't test this.

I have just tried out IE7 from Outlook 2003 on XP on another of my PC's and that loads add-ins no problem.

I think I'll just leave it - however as the help from Microsoft suggests I can't understand why more people aren't complaining about this. Have posted query on Outlook forum as IE forum seems to blame the mail client! But no feedback.

Thanks for your time.

Lou
