Hi all and thanks in advance for any thoughts and help offered.

My problem is with regards to Internet Explorer and the fact it is not functioning correctly. I downloaded via the microsoft website IE8 about 10 days ago but since have been baffled by IE to carry out the very basics.

Be patient here as my explanations may not be detailed as desired for you tech guys.
I want to download programmes or files from the net/microsoft website etc but am unable to as 'the information bar' which should pop to allow you to install active x etc does not appear. here I tried to look on windows update to see if any files where missing and needed updating but this operation is not possible, as the info bar does not appear when microsoft ask for you to install active x
The tools button where you can change security settings etc are not in view on my internet explorer nor are any of the other icons which should appear on the internet page.
when i try to download a file, it is normal for a security warning to pop up on the screen giving you the option to run, save as or cancel but i never get this option.

My computer and internet explorer have had a system restore prior to my download of IE8 via safe mode but this does not resolve the issue. Other factors that may help is that I use Norton Internet Security and a full virus scan has picked up nothing more than low grade tracking cookies.

Any help or assistant would be massively appreciated

As IE8 is still on Beta i recommend to go back to IE7 with latest updates.Let IE8 for lately, probably by mid 2009 it will be more stable than now.If you still want IE8 then un-reinstall it and see whats up.
