Little confused.....right click your tool bar and see if you can LOCK the toolbar....

That should keep it from changeing

as for the side window opening I know from experince IE save the last way it was closed....open it clost the search window...try using IE for a little then close it but make sure it is the way you want it...see if that helps

What version do you have now? I cant seem to think of any downsides of upgrading to 6.0 from any other IE anyway..

The 6.0 has better control of cookies and its got a couple extra bells and whistles....not many but just enough to make you want it... like all Microsoft upgrades. :)

All your bells, whistles and settings will stay in tact. Outlook express will save all your contacts and settings. The web site even detects which version of windows you have and sets you up with the right file. And it's free. Wow.

Unfortunately, IE6 will only run on Win98 and higher. :(
