Greetings. As the topic title suggests, this is a really arcane question.
user inadvertently installed Google Chrome (we have to run IE 6/IE 7 for certain apps). Instead of uninstalling it, she just deleted it. Now, one of her key apps doesn't work.
What I've noticed in her IE 6 is that she doesn't have the IE symbol/icon to the left of a url in her address bar. The symbol/icon that shows almost looks like a calendar shortcut icon.
Would anyone happen to know what file(s) is missing or how to I get the IE symbol/icon back in her address bar?
TIA,
AvgJoe

AvgJoe,
ormally I'd recommend re-installing the browser, but I recently read that there was a funeral for IE6.
How about a system restore to a point before Chrome was installed? Or installing IE7?

I would try reinstalling CHROME and then UNINSTALLING using the correct method and see if that helps. If not, then other means are required.

or you can open IE, "tool" - "options" - Program tab - check default browser...

I would still suggest getting rid of the garbage hanging around after the non-standard uninstall. <
But that is something to try as well after the junk is gone.

I just afraid this "user" has been "messing-around and removed" many others "things", then clean install can helps...

That's why I suggested installing the Chrome browser again so that a clean uninstall can occur. I've done that before where someone did remove a program partially. It doesn't always work, but many times it will do wonders.

Guys,
hanx for the replies. The user is involved on a high-priority project at the moment. I get in early, so I think I'll take Bob's suggestion and go from there.
Dennis - congrats on your 5,000th post.
