Internet Explorer Toolbar Fix

When Internet Explorer has several toolbars installed, the context menu items do not reflect the correct toolbar - i.e. Google and Yahoo toolbars are both showing and you wish to hide the Google one. So you click 'Google' in the menu - but the Yahoo one disappears instead. This bug has been around for a long time. However, it can be fixed by tweaking the registry (found at http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/ietips.htm#Odd). Here is the fix (create blank text file called ResetBrowserToolbar.reg, and then double-click the newly created file)

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser]
"ITBarLayout"=-
