Running Windows Xp, Service Pack 3, Internet Explorer 8. Everytime I open Explorer, the pop - up window 'View Manage Your Internet Explorer Add - Ons' window opens.

I have already run Malwarebytes, Rogue Killer, AdwCleaner, ComboFix and JRT Junkware removal tool and have now run out of ideas. Does anyone have a solution, please?

It's not malware. You can't get rid of it but if you go into Tools of IE, it can be disabled or delayed.

Many thanks frankp316...................I completely missed the obvious and have solved the problem by reinstalling IE8 which prompted a message relating to Bing. Having disabled this search provider as prompted by the message, all is now Ok. Thanks again.

FWIW:  I just ran into this 2 days ago on someone else's system and I attributed it malware on the system (there had been before I removed it).

 

Since I had never previously seen the "IE is running without add-ons" message, I had no other line of thinking.  But...today I decided to research that particular message and came across the info at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969107 .

 

In any case, glad you resolved it :).

Hi Louis,

Thanks for the info............interesting solution!

I guess I may have inadvertently achieved the same by performing a new install, which automatically removes any previous version.

Why is it that when I use my computer for what's supposed to be a five minute job, I seem to spend hours rectifying a problem that wasn't there the day before!!!

Oh joy.........thank goodness I'm retired and have the time to spare.

Regards

Ian
