Thread: Security Status Bar Missing in IE8

    Default Re: Security Status Bar Missing in IE8

    Hello again:

    I was able to get that padlock icon to remain in Google mail after the login
    by disabling the WOT (Web of Trust) add-on.

    I realized this when I found it remained visible when IE was in Safe Mode.
    By trial and error, it was the WOT add-on that appears to have made that
    icon disappear. Odd...

    In Yahoo email, its different. The Yahoo log- in page shows the padlock, but
    once I go to Yahoo mail, it goes away even with WOT disabled. However, this
    might be a bit different from Google mail in that same happens in Firefox
    with Yahoo mail in terms of the padlock on bottom of page there. Google
    Calendar is the same. They disappear once the log in is achieved.

    WOT (www.mywot.com) installed here and cannot reproduce this behavior.

    Given your posting history in various MS newsgroups (which is pretty
    difficult to determine specifically since you post using the common email
    alias someone@somebody.com with usernames like 'eli' & 'ira' & yes, I have a
    pretty good memory), I think you may have been dealing with an infected
    computer for the year or so. Of course YMMV but your best bet may be as
    follows:

    Back-up any personal data (none of which should be considered 100%
    trustworthy at this point) then format the HDD & do a clean install of
    Windows. Please note that a Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT
    fix this!

    HOW TO do a clean install of WinXP: See
    http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html#steps and/or Method 1 in
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978307

    After the clean install, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" so
    take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting
    the machine to the internet or a local network (i.e., other computers) and
    before using a flash drive or SDCard that isn't brand-new or hasn't been
    freshly formatted:

    (after a clean install)

    HOW TO get a computer running WinXP SP1(a) or SP2 fully patched (after a
    clean install)
    http://groups.google.com/group/micro...66ae41add7dd2b

    Tip: After getting the computer fully-patched, download/install KB971029
    manually: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971029

    NB: Any Norton or McAfee free-trial that came preinstalled on the computer
    when you bought it will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is
    reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the free-trial and download/run the
    appropriate removal tool before installing any updates, Windows Service
    Packs or IE upgrades and before installing your new anti-virus application
    (which will require WinXP SP3 to be installed).

    Norton Removal Tool

    McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool

    If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting
    this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.

    Best of luck. Over & out.
