    I cannot install the yellow bar at the coupon sites to install the coupon
    printer. I have WinXP, serv pk2, I am the administrator, I just updated to
    IE7 because it asks for that, everything is ok otherwise. How do I get this
    coupon bar to be installed? What am I missing? Thank you.

    When you go to a site that offers coupons to print out, some of these sites
    have you installing a printer whereby there is a yellow bar at the top under
    the browser window with ActiveX being used to do this. You have to select
    the ActiveX in order for the site's coupon printer to be installed. I've
    never had this problem before but now I cannot get it. I don't know if the
    site has done something to its page and we cannot access it or what. I have
    done everything possible but something is not right. Thanks.

    IE Help > About: What version is displayed here (e.g., 7.0.5700.6)?

    Are you referring to the appearance of Information Bar and being asked to
    accept the use or install of an ActiveX Control?

    Does the Information Bar never appear or...?

    If you uninstall IE7 RC1 (which automatically returns you to IE6), does this
    behavior persist?

    The special Information Bar does NOT appear. I had it on IE6 and it wouldn't
    work but recommended to install an upgrade of IE7 which I did. I contacted
    the companies and they realize there is a problem and are working to fix
    them. So I guess I will have to wait or try something else if there is
    another way.

    If the Information Bar didn't appear when you were running IE6, upgrading to
    IE7 RC1 probably wouldn't help /if/ the problem's on the website's end.

    If you've not done so already, I would uninstall IE7 RC1 (which
    automatically returns you to IE6), then wait till you see how things pan out
    before installing IE7 RC1 or IE7 Final Release.

    NB: One or more of your "security" applications (e.g., anti-virus,
    third-party firewall, anti-spyware) /may/ be causing the problem.
