mouse pointer on a word gives translations

  The Old Git 11:37 29 Oct 2006

On some applications such as IE6, when the mouse pointer stops over a word a window appears to the right of the pointer with translations of that word into other languages. This is very irritating and sometimes covers words in an adjacent window down the tree which I might need to see. I can't find out how to stop it doing this.

Am using fully updated IE6 with XP Home also fully updated.

Any ideas please?

Are you using Google Toolbar ?

If so go into Google Toolbar options go to Browsing/Productivity and untick the box against WordTranslator.

Problem solved. Many thanks - I was nowhere near this one!
