    strange toolbar

    I installed Frontpage 02 on W2k about a week ago. Now, a strange toolbar appears in the upper left corner of my screen whenever my mouse passes over a picture, such as my wallpaper. The toolbar has 4 icons corresponding to: save this image, print this image, email this image, open the images file.

    I would like to shut this thing off, but i dont have a clue what or where the switch is. Nor am i sure it is related to FP 02. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    Start | Settings | Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Computer Management

    then

    System Information | Software Environment | Startup Programs

    anything look a likely suspect there?

    I believe This appeared with Internet Explorer 6 that is downloadable from Microsoft or comes with Windows XP. Can't help you with its removal I'm afraid except maybe to go back to IE5.5.

    Further investigation shows an entry in the IE options seems to be probably what you are looking for.

    Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Multimedia>Enable Image Toolbar

    Bingo!

    I forgot that i had installed IE6 to overcome a bug in Frontpage 02.

    Nice catch.
