Latitude 600 XP Pro. I clicked on a desktop IE8 icon this morning for the first time in months and got the message that Internet Explorer was currently running without add-ons.. Program still on Control Panel. Went to Tools-Manage Add-ons and found 21 enabled add-ons and 6 disabled ones.
I can't imagine what happened since I've been using Google or Mozilla for quite some time, and now I wonder if the same thing could happen to them. Desktop also has a second IE icon which brings the box that the file could not be found. I'm not desperate for IE, but I really liked the home page. Also, I don't know how 2 desktop icons came about. What would happen if I removed the program? I would guess I don't need it. I called the icons I clicked desktop; they weren't desktop; they are on my start menu. There are no IE icons on the desktop. They disappeared so I used the start menu.
