The team behind the notorious Storm worm often takes advantage
of holidays to launch attacks, and Valentine's Day is no exception. The worm
is now using a Valentine's Day twist to try and infect users with malicious
code. Be on the lookout this month for suspicious e-mails with subject lines
about love. These "love" notes are actually designed to deliver a
"poison kiss" to your computer.

Question: I recently purchased a new computer and it has the
Microsoft Vista Home Premium operating system and includes Internet Explorer
7 as the browser. I noticed that Internet Explorer 7 does not have a menu bar
at the top any longer. I used to frequently use the "Edit" button
located on the menu bar to cut, copy, paste, etc. Is there a way to get this
menu bar back onto the Internet Explorer 7 browser?
1. With Internet Explorer open, click your cursor arrow on the "Tools" button located on your Internet Explorer 7 toolbar.
2. Scroll down to "Menu Bar" on the resulting drop-down menu and select it. The menu bar will immediately appear on your Internet Explorer 7 browser. This works the same whether you are using Windows XP Home Edition or Windows Vista Home Premium as your operating system.
Unlike the Internet Explorer 6 browser, Internet Explorer 7 includes few buttons by default on its command bar (toolbar). To add additional buttons to Internet Explorer 7 browser when using either Windows XP Home Edition or Windows Vista Home Premium operating systems, follow these steps:
1. Launch Internet Explorer.
2. Click your cursor arrow on the "Tools" button located on your Internet Explorer toolbar.
3. Scroll down to "Toolbars" and then select "Customize" from the resulting submenu.
4. A Customize Toolbar dialog box will appear. It will have two listings of buttons. On the left side is the list called "Available toolbar buttons." On the right side is the list called "Current toolbar buttons." Select the buttons from the "Available toolbar buttons" list that you'd like to add to the Internet Explorer 7 command bar.
5. Click on the "Add" button and then click on "Close." Your selected buttons will now be added to your browser's command bar (toolbar). Note, however, that you may not be able to actually see the added buttons. You'll need to click your cursor arrow on the two right-pointing arrows located on the far right side of the command bar (toolbar) to see the added buttons listed within a drop-down menu.
