    Internet Explorer 6 toolbar names 'mixed' (6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633)

    Hi All!

    I am currently using the latest version of IE6 on Windows XP SP1 with all
    the updates.

    When I click in IE: View -> Toolbars, and then choose a toolbar name - IE
    activate (display) the wrong toolbar.

    For example:
    I have a toolbar named Systran40premi.IEPlugIn ( it belong to
    SystranSoft's Systran 4). When I tick it, it activate the Norton Anti Virus
    toolbar instead.
    When I tick the Norton Anti Virus toolbar, it activate the
    Systran40premi.IEPlugIn toolbar instead...

    What went wrong here? How can I fix that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, just to get the ball rolling (hopefully). This seems to be a screwed up implementation of the Browser Helper Object function. Each toolbar is registered as a BHO and should be assigned a unique Class Identifier number. IE should be able to correctly and clearly identify which BHO is which when a user selects a given toolbar to be displayed.

    Things that can screw this up include poorly written BHO installations and incomplete removal of other BHO's. For example, some spyware toolbars muck this up, as can manually removing the Yahoo Companion. However, I believe neither of these two problems are occurring in this instance.

    There are BHO tools out there (BHOCop, BHODemon), but those are usually used to remove BHO's -- not to repair them. Is manipulation of the registry the only solution?

    What about removing the Systran program? If you remove it, does the NAV toolbar work properly? Then the Systran implementation is suspect. You may have to contact that company...

    In the meantime, can you Export, extract, and paste these registry keys (in total):

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerBrow ser Helper Objects
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionexplorerBrow ser Helper Objects

    Umm, Rick, don't you mean HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftware... instead of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTSoftware...?

    If R2 is helping you step-wise through the unstable BHO problem to see what happens next and then continue, I certainly defer to him. If that doesn't pan out, then here are more alternatives, and the first two steps I'd do as an adjunct to anything else anyway because they won't hurt can help.

    1) Run Spybot and Adaware Post 296439

    2) Run System File Checker which can replace files that are damaged in IE/XP and might fix this. No downside to running it. A link to references is below.

    SFC References:

    Post 317087: Links for running SFC

    Post 324140: Tip on Annoyance to Overcome in Running SFC Successfully

    3) 318378: How to Reinstall or Repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

    4) Read the article here on Toolbar Missing IE under "T" Kelly's A to Z with free toolbar repair utility

    5) Go to Kelly's Tweaks: Line 114 Right Column:Enable Reinstallation of IE

    Then once running this automatic regedit, rename the CatRoot2 folder and then run the ie.inf. Or use this run command:

    Go to Start/Run, and type: rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%infie.inf

    6) Reinstall IE this way:

    Go to Kelly's Tweaks Line 29 Left Column and Run VBS Script File: Reinistall IE

    or

    Re-install Internet Explorer - Go to Start/Run, and type : "rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%infie.inf"(no quotes)

    hth,

    Dave, it seems like google toolbar was the cause to this mix up.
    I uninstalled systran as suggested, but it just mixed the other toolbars.
    I uninstalled google toolbar and everything got back in order.
    I re-installed systran and lastly re-installed google toolbar and all seems to be fine now.
    Do u have google toolbar installed by any chance?

    Yes I do, I will check the laptop and see if it is the same way.

    Laptop is ok, but I do not have Adobe Acrobat installed on it.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    There just seems to be a problem with the way some toolbars install themselves. Since I never use any toolbars, I never know for sure why the problem occurs....

    DAVE - if you could post those registry keys, maybe something enlightening will appear.

    As for CLASSES_ROOT -- all I can say is that when I searched for "BHO" in my registry, those were the two important keys I found! Certainly, an CU key might be used also -- but I personally did not locate one! I'll take information from all three places -- if it exists! ;-]

    I have Google toolbar and I have Adobe Reader 6 but I don't have Adobe Acrobat and I don't have Systran. No problems so far after about a year. Glad you fixed it. I'd still run Spybot and Adaware regularly. I'm sure toolbar installation order can sometimes figure into the equation or the conflicts Dave referenced. Hope it works smoothly.

    If you ever have to fix IE/OE you have some references in my previous post.
