Great article

Thanks for the feedback

I appreciate the comments. Rather than writing about abstract issues. I try to pick the problems that have a daily effect and can be readily addressed. If you have an issue you'd like addressed click on the link and send your suggestion.

Good Luck,

Beware of the taskbar

by dynoroddy In reply to Get rid of Web bugs in yo ...

The registry patch works perfectly for the Outlook icon on the desktop, but not for any shortcuts in Programs|Startup or the taskbar.

Adding the /nopreview switch to these shortcuts solves the problem

Now all I have to do is find, log onto, and patch 60-odd PCs. Oh, the delights of supporting M$ products.
