Internet Explorer 8 keeps running Welcome screen and Install Live Toolbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • How does one make changes to the user profile that will stay?  Every time I run the protected user Internet Explorer 8 wants to run its welcome screen and tries to install Live toolbar.  I have run these in the Administrator identity and tried turning WDP on or off and on with the "Retain Changes" option and still the changes do not effect the protected user???

    There must be a way to make changes or add new programs, etc.  The documentation is not much help.  Even when WDP is set to off, I still get the message that I need to save files to a removable drive because all changes will be lost - sounds wrong?

    This could be a very useful program, but it is not working out well so far.

  • Hi MikeStMarks, have you tried the following:

    1. Log on the administrator account.

    2. Disable WDP.

    3. Log on the restricted user and make the settings in IE or other system settings.

    4. Restart the computer and use administrator to turn on WDP.

    Then, please check if the setting is kept. Hope this helps!
