Edges of browser disappeared and taskbar too

  kinger 19:21 10 Apr 2005

Hi all.

A friend of mine has just called me to say they're running Windows ME and IE broswer.

They have lost the menu bar (including the 'x'and resize buttons) and the scroll bar at the right hand side of the screen.

When talking to her over the phone she informed me that the start and taskbar had gone missing although it did occasionally turn up.

Screen resolution seems OK as the icons are all sized correctly.

Pressing F11 in browser doesn't help.

I can vaguely remember this problem and wonder if anyone can give the answer to it.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Try a repair click here

Unfortunately, this option isn't appearing where the 'repair' states it should appear in her Add Remove list.

If anyone else can help, please do.

I've also been informed that she hasn't got System Restore on her PC.

Wasn't this introduced in ME?

Anyone else any ideas, please?

They should have both the repair IE and System Restore options.

Silly question but can you ask them to check which version of Windows they actually have please?

They say it is Windows ME

They are using the NTL MS explorer browser

Download the latest IE click here (this is the full version, not just an update.)

Thanks VoG™, I will give her the link to do just that.

Thanks for your help and time.
