  1. heya mates,
    lately i've noticed that my IE7 starts in the No add-ons mode.
    not that i use IE7 alot, but some websites i do open them with this software.
    now to the point, how do i start it WITH add-ons?
    i have no clue how it changed to No Add-ons mode :S

    i'm working with XP Pro.

    If you right click on your Internet Explorer Shortcut (that you are using)
    Then click on Properties, you will see:
    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

    To allow Internet Explorer to Start with Addons, just remove the -extoff part.

    Note: If you prefer, you can use the real Internet Explorer shortcut, by doing the following:

    Start-->Control Panel-->Display (Or just right click Desktop-->Properties)
    Click on Desktop tab
    Click on Customize Desktop...
    Under Desktop Items tick Internet Explorer
    OK Apply OK

    You now have an Internet Explorer new shortcut icon on your Desktop (without the little shortcut arrow)
