niggles

Just a couple of niggles I put up with but have now decided to do something about- every time I boot up I get a small window come up titled 'res://ie4tour.dll/welcome.htm' and the content says 'Cannot find etc., etc.,' Obviously this is something to do with IE4 which I no longer use but how do I stop it?
Secondly, my taskbar recently went from one to two rows and I can't get it back to one. I can drag it down to nothing at the bottom of the screen. Is it because there are too many icons in the sys tray? If so, how do I remove them?
Thanking you all in anticipation...

Removing icons in the system tray:

start

run

msconfig

under the startup tab, disable anything you don't want / need.

I looked into system tray cure, but there was nothing relating to my icons e.g.- winamp agent, task scheduler, mediakey(my keyboard), AVG, Zonealarm, ???

The res/ie4tour wasn't in control panel\internet options\advanced; wasn't too sure what I was looking for in registry.

Sorry crx, I meant the solution to the res/ie4tour problem was not in control panel\internet options\advanced, i.e. the 'show welcome message each time i log on' option was not available.

Still haven't resolved either of these...

Would it fix if you installed IE6 [with safety patches]? It's better for security and you can adjust privacy stringently.

this could be related to your shutdown problem

canard- I have ie6 + updates.

stalion- I suppose it could but the shut down problem only started in the last few days.( these 2 are from long ago)

Re the sys tray prob, I'd like to keep the programs, just remove some of the icon in the sys tray.

Just keep the ones you need in sys tray. L click and drag and drop the ones you don't need often to a shortcuts folder which you can make by R clicking start-open and new folder- call it shortcuts - and shove them in there.

Didn't work. Could d+d from taskbar, but not from sys tray.
