Where's me progress bar gone???

Hi all, I THINK it's called the progress bar - the bar that runs at the bottom of I.E. (v. 6 in this case..), little green squares when page loading? it's gone!! Don't know where, or when - I noticed it yesterday. I've looked on the MS site but can't find anything connected with progress bar that's relevant. I LIKED that bar... anyone know how I can get it back? One thing has crossed my mind .... would the latest lot of MS updates have something to do with it?

It's the STATUS bar you're after.

How come you have got little green squares, all i have is a blue box filling from the left ?

You're a star! Thanks, works fine now. I'm not sure HOW it became unticked ... let's blame the weather - everyone else does when something goes wrong. 8-D

There's a bug in IE6 on XP where it keeps disappearing. All Microsoft can recommednd is that you keep ticking the option to re activate, which isn't much help. There is a possible fix that has been suggested here involving folder options but I can't find the thread at the moment.

don't wanna upset you, but my boxes are now orange - since I went into control panel/display/appearance.....

I might change my colour later, i didnt realise you could change status bar colour.. ;-)
