IE8 PC1 add-ond disabled

  CardoCardo 14:04 27 Jan 2009

Everytime I open IE*, which I've made the mistake of installing thinking that PC1 would be substaially debugged, I get "Internet Explorer is running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disable or remove add-ons" I click "Manage Add-Ons" and it comes up with a list of all my add-ons saying enabled; What do I do?

The Help section says "make sure to select Internet Explorer on the Start menu and do not select Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" but I am not offered those options.

I have some useful toolsbars installed. They show up in the Tools/Toolbars menu but they will not enable (ie get a tick) when I try.

I've tried to roll back to IE7 but cannot find out how to do so. Help.

The toolbars are probably not compatible. I had to update the Google toolbar after install.

Click Uninstall.

Select the Show updates check box if it is not already.
Scroll down the list and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, and then click Remove.

I've since got through to Microsoft Support. The admit that IE8 RC1 is proving very unstable and their support desk is overwhelmed. They suggested going back to IE7 and waiting for final release. In fact the guy I spoke to was candid and said wait a few months after that!!.
So goodbye IE8 and welcome back IE7.
