I now have a blue bar under the menu bar in IE8

    I'm running IE8.

    I think I allowed some toolbar to be added a couple of days ago. Can't
    remember what it was. Might have been with a java update.

    Anyway, I now have a blue bar under the menu bar in IE8 that says
    Downloading the latest applications

    Been like that at least since yesterday.

    Do you know what is going on and how to fix it?



    Thanks

    I mistakingly sent this first to the windows ng

    Right click on the area where the Menu/Tool Bars live (a blank portion, not
    on an icon) and turn the bars off until you get the right one.

    He always pastes boilerplate text in his responses, which often is
    not really appropriate for the situation at hand.

    He also likes to dictate how others use the newsgroups. For example,
    on your post he will likely comment that you should always quote his
    entire text and put all your responses above it, rather than keep
    only the relevant part and answer inbetween.

    Of course he has no authority to dictate anything you do or don't
    do in the newsgroup.
