NIS: Toolbar+add-ons.Followed all steps read. UAC may be Factor ?

Hello Folks, After my first post today ,about 5 hrs ago ,I learned how to review all information on this topic. I followed every step, in all areas, and nothing changed the problems in my 1ST post. I also did not see problems mentioned about Google tool bar or no gmail access. This is what works for me now but think it correctable somehow. To get online via IE9, 32 bit or 64 bit, and not "in private " I must right click I.E. and run as Administrator. My PC asks if I will allow I.E. to make changes to my computer via Microsoft. I hit yes. 1} Is doing this all the time harmful? I am the Administrator. When I want to browse in private I have to hit the safety tab and then in private Browsing. Then exit the fisrt Google page.. As I never knew of this problem before I had no idea how to find help. Thank goodness for this site. 2] Do you think that the reimage program brought my files uo to date.? Perhaps it was a good thing but showed this problem afterwards. All else works alright, No old problems really solved though. Had 1447 missing or corrupt files.....Hmmmmm. 3] Could my problem be with Microsoft? 4] is there any way to make this PC see that I am the administrator, as per 1st post? 5] Could some UAC setting get rid of my problem? There must be others with this problem, not including a reimage perhaps. Many Thanks . atHome 34

It is easier for us to work with just one thread for the same problem.

If you are using private mode, I believe most or all add ons are disabled as part of the added security.

Using a 64 bit browser is not supported by the Norton Toolbar.

Reimage just takes the computer back to the state it was in when the image was created. All your programs will need to be updated, including Windows.

The corrupt files could indicate a failing hard drive. Click on the Start - Computer. Then right click on your hard drive and choose Properties -Tools - Error Checking. Select both options for Automatically fix, and Scan for bad sectors. You will have to reboot your computer to have the scan complete.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
