Yesterday I made a clean instal of XP Home Edition on my PC and by and large everything is working fine. Some programmes look a little different to previously!
The only glitch is that when run IE7, I get a page telling me that IE7 is running without add-ons such as ActiveX, and this may effect the appearance of some web pages. In the 'Tools' menu there is a heading 'manage add-ons' but this seems not to be enabled.
IE7 is coping with the few sites I use most regularly (such as Hotmail.com) but I would like to solve this little problem if possible.
