Missing toolbars


Q: I typically surf the web using Internet Explorer’s InPrivate Browsing mode for better safety and privacy, but when I use this mode, some of my toolbar add-ins (such as the Norton toolbar add-in) are no longer displayed. Is there a way to display the Norton toolbar (and other toolbars) when browsing the web using the InPrivate mode?

A: As a default, Internet Explorer disables all toolbar add-ins when you select InPrivate Browsing, but you can change this default setting as follows: From the Internet Explorer menu, select Tools, Internet options. From the Internet options dialog box, select the Privacy tab and uncheck the box titled Disable toolbars and extensions when InPrivate Browsing starts. Thereafter your toolbar add-ins will display properly in an InPrivate Browsing window.
