Using IE7, occasionally all toolbars (address bar, status bar, and Google toolbar) immediately scroll off the top of the IE page and totally disappear. NOT using fullpage mode. No way to control things when this happens - have to resort to using Firefox :thumbsup: Restarting computer has no effect. After a couple of days, all is back to normal. Any idea why this happens and how to prevent it? Thanks.

Is the Toolbar locked? When you right-click the toolbar, uncheck Lock the Toolbars. See if that allows you to customize the toolbar/command bar. Then lock the Toolbar.

Also, a number of Antispyware (NOT AntiVirus) programs are capable of locking some Internet Explorer settings. Examples are Spybot, Ad-Aware or Windows One Care.
See if you can customize the IE Toolbar after starting up in Safe Mode, or turning off your antispyware program temporarily.

Yes, I always keep the toolbars locked, just by default. I'll try unlocking it next time. But that setting had not changed when this strange behavior starts... Thanks for the advice.

Update - I unlocked the toolbars, and after several days, this strange behavior reappeared. I do not run antispyware, except an ad hoc scan on occasion, which I have not done. This is extremely annoying, and can't imagine no one else has seen it. Any further ideas? Thanks for your reply.

You can give this a try:
Click View/ Toolbars.
Uncheck Lock the Toolbars, then left click the first toolbar on the second row and drag it to where you want it.
Don't release the mouse until you have pressed the Alt key and the standard toolbar is in place. The standard toolbar should stay put when you release the mouse.
Lock the toolbar.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
