    Checked menu bar and was able to display permanently the menu bar for several
    months and now it has disappeared. The check mark is still there and will not
    uncheck. Other check marks like lock the toolbar will check and uncheck. ALT
    does not do anything.

    Reset IE 7 and that did not solve the problem. The check mark remains in
    front of Menu Bar and will not uncheck.

    Have not made any add ons. Running Vista Home Premium OS.

    Have searched for days for a solution but only found several other posts
    with the same problem and no solution.

    Please help.

    Does this behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode? To start
    IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

    1. Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons;

    2. Start > (All) Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer
    (No add-ons).


    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:

    Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)? <= Read before using!

    1) Yes it still will not uncheck nor is the menu bar there in "No Add-ons
    2) Yes the problem still persists after Reset IE7 Settings (RIES).

    Any solutions?

    One or more options/settings in an ever-growing number of third-party
    applications may be disallowing the change(s). These include but are not
    limited to Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, Spybot Tea Timer, SpywareBlaster,
    SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, Norton AntiVirus, McAfee VirusScan and/or
    Antispyware, and Zone Alarm (Free and Pro).

    Thanks for trying to help.

    We have two computers running identical applications and one is just fine.
    The one I'm trying to fix was fine for 6 months running it on Vista Home
    Premiuim and then the menu bar just disappeard.

    No spyware or adware, etc. but running Nortons Anti-Virus (on both). Nio
    new programs installed either.

    I'm still hoping someone who has had the problem and has fixed it, or
    someone from Microsoft (Know I'm dreaming) might post a fix.

    ...running Nortons Anti-Virus (on both).

    And do you see Norton AntiVirus listed in my last reply?

    Yes, I saw it and that is why I mentioned it is running on another computer
    and there is no problem with that computer. Guess maybe it can cause
    problems or not.

    Fixed it
    By clicking on other display options (Links, Status Bar, etc.) and turning
    those elements on and off, the Menu Bar suddenly unchecked. Once it appeared,
    I could click to display, click to hide it.
    There was some type of interaction between the other display options, and
    the Menu bar's display.
