ABP for IE does not work ? see what to do

Post by mapx »

unable to see ABP icon ?
The ABP icon is displayed on the "Status Bar" at the bottom of your screen.
You may need to enable the Status Bar.
Click "View/Toolbars" & put a checkmark in the "Status Bar" box.

Is ABP enabled ?
- click tools / manage add-ons ==> enable ABP
- internet options, advanced: see if "enable third-party browser extensions" is checked (enabled)

Conflicts with other add-ons
- remove / disable any other add-on (in manage add-ons)

clean unnecessary data (cookies, old files after system updates, temp files)
