I can not install any Toolbars in Internet Explorer. First- The Norton (Identity check security something) did not get to install, then Yahoo. The message appears, "Yahoo (or Norton) toolbar is not compatible with Internet Explorer's advanced security settings". Can't remember if it actually says, "Settings", but it has to do with some advanced security features of IE. But I need my Yahoo Toolbar for commonly-used web sites and "Search" bar. How do we overcome this issue? Are there any settings that can be changed? Thank you.

Hi In IE,go to the top right and click on the gear wheel. From the list select Internet options. From there you can alter your security settings and addons ect.

Thank you for your reply. I know about security settings, but I don't know which ones prevent toolbars.

Hi. Are you using the 64 bit version of Internet Explorer? The Norton toolbar will not work on this, only the 32bit version. (the same with other toolbars). Also you may need to access IE from the Desktop as lots of things are tricky to work if you use the Metro Interface. You could try using Firefox browser as I do as there are very few compatablity issues with addons and extensions

I am accessing it from the desktop- I don't even know what that thing they created in Metro, called IE is for. lol. I have been using IE the entire time I used computer and would really not want to switch. Also my school's Blackboard is very picky of what browsers it would run on. Up until now, the 32 bit toolbars were working fine on Win 8.0. With the new IE 11, I lost them- the moment IE got installed. I can not imaging that Yahoo would stop using/offering the toolbars for IE- hard to believe it. Thank you.

Hi. Try clicking the gear again and in internet options click the advanced tab and uncheck the box that says Enable enhanced protected mode * . Then install toolbar (or enable in manage addons it if you have it installed already)

Hi. You could also try this to go back to IE 10. Do a System restore point first.

You have to download the setup file of IE 10. Download IE 10 from here. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/ie... Run the setup.

While the process runs, it will show message regarding the newer version. Select to remove the newer one and install the older one.

Then, the setup will continue and you will have IE 10 instead of IE 11.

toolbars are present - simple solution is when IE 11 opens press alt key - this brings up a toolbar which has "view" -- click view and then "toolbars" - check the toolbars you want to have displayed. If you ever want to get rid of the toolbars simply press alt again. As for Norton, McAfee etc I guess we have to wait for them to develop a version compatible with 8.1 and IE 11
