1) Boot up IE 8
2) Go to tools
3) Internet options
4) Click Advanced Tab
5) Click Reset

Best of luck !!

Oh and tool bars, i never use them.

you could try a system restore to a earlier day ie yesterday or maybe the day before.

Once u have reste IE8 then you will see Tools on the far right hand side of IE, click on that and then you will see options for toolbars.

If you had reset ie ,,, it should put everything back as it originally was, and the "Tools" WILL be on the far right. I just reset mine here & it works.

When I boot up I cannot get "Tools"
Is there another way to reset this please?
All I have is the Google toolbar.
