    control panel or right -click ( this is on winxp IE 6 SP1)

    Close IE and open the registry editor (Start / Run / regedit)
    at the following keys:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    +Software
    +Policies
    +Microsoft
    +Internet Explorer
    +Control Panel

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    +Software
    +Policies
    +Microsoft
    +Internet Explorer
    +Control Panel


    Look for an entry (in the right hand window) called GeneralTab.
    Either right click on it and change it to 0 (zero), or delete it.

    Once that is done, install, update and run the following:
