Problem after uninstalling AB?

Post by Strell » Sun Oct 19, 2003 12:54 am

I uninstalled AB a while back.  I'm not sure which version I had, I know the icon used to be red instead of B, and this was within the last month, so it couldn't have been too long ago.

I like AB, but my screen resolution is only 800x600, and AB's menus at the top took up too much room for me, so I got rid of it.  Now, however, when I try to open up a link for some specific sources - especially from inside IMs and e-mails in Outlook - an IE screen opens up that is completely blank.  The page says it's done downloading, but nothing shows up.  It never downloads anything.

I noticed that when I had AB and I opened up a link from sources like that, it did open inside AB, not IE.  And I think the problem is that AB left some setting changed to it's specifications after I uninstalled it, and as a result it's not letting IE open those popups.

I even got the newest version - with the blue icon - and installed/uninstalled in hopes that would clear it up, but it didn't.  

Is there something I'm missing?  Sorry if this has been discussed before, I browsed through the first 3-4 pages of this forum before asking this.

Thanks to anyone who might have some information for me!!!

See if this helps any,

Did you try rearanging your toolbars at all? How about full desktop mode? I'm at 800x600 as well and have plenty of space.

Did you re-establish IE as your default browser?  That may solve many extension problems.
....what smells like blue !?!

Me too. I find putting the menu bar and the standard tools bar on the top row and the address and search bars on the row below that gets everything **** beautifully in 800x600. With the tabs on a third row I've then got everyting I want in just three. The other bars I don't dispay, except sometimes I use the links bar, which is kept squeezed up so that nothing but its first icon displays at the far right end of the top one.

If you want to use some of the extra buttons (tile, cascade, close all and so on) thse fit best at the right end of the secing row.

As for your problem, is Avant still your default browser?

You're not alone in this problem -- and it's been around for a bit.  I also uninstalled Avant and found that clicking on links in other programs no longer transfered that link to IE.  Only a blank page started up.  These links are posts on the topic as well:
