      Correct, but I am a single user and I do not have User profiles activated. Therefore my easiest option is to delete the files in DOS. They are recreated in the boot process — and correctly indexed. If you don’t believe what a mess your index.dat files can get into, I highly recommend opening them with a binary text editor and you will be in for a big surprise.

      Thanks for the input Dave. That is bad news. I will spread this knowledge around.

      I am very sorry for the deviation into the realm of the evil web bugs, but these 1×1 pixel gifs are always suspicious… Perhaps SOMEONE out there learned something because of my diatribe.

      I figured it HAD to be a Java problem once I got to the bottom of what was occurring. It was a GOOD question — just a little tough to solve. That what makes this fun! Take care. Enjoy your surfing.

      All you say is correct. It appears that some programs like to move the TIF and even the /Cookies and /History folders. I have found several at times as well!

      I use a Binary Script Editor to view the contents of the index.dat files. That is how I KNOW exactly what they have in them and how to deal with them.

      My actual recommendation is to FULLY delete the TIF folder in the autoexec.bat file. Second, I delete the /Cookies/index.dat file.

      If you do this, BOTH index.dat files will CORRECTLY index your folders and ALL stray entries are GONE.

      Some people report an index.dat file in the /History folder as well, but for some reason my computers (10) do NOT have this.

      These are the EXACT lines I have in my autoexec.bat file:

      deltree /y c:windowstempor~1
      deltree /y c:windowscookiesindex.dat

      These will clean OUT your TIF and re-index both folders.

      Jeff, if you change that FileType association, are you ADDING your editor in addition to Notepad, or are you REPLACING Notepad with your editor?

      Also, my Tools | Internet Options | Programs shows FrontPage as my default editor. Yet the button on my Toolbar shows the Word “W” next to the Edit drop down list. Why?

      Lastly, when you right-click a webpage and choose Veiw Source, you are still given Notepad as the Default source viewer. Strange…

      Ah, wait!! I almost missed it. See this line:

      **You will need to activate java to view this menu.**

      Is your Java persmission set correctly? Go under Tools | Internet Options… | Security | Internet (zone) | Custom level… | Microsoft VM | Java Permissions — and see what it says.

      Next, MAYBE your version of Java is too old. Hold down the “Windows” button (between Ctrl and Alt) and hit the “R” key. In the Run box, type “wjview” (no quotes) and hit Enter. In the resulting screen, look at the top line and see what Version is listed.

      **This MUST be a Java problem.**

      If you click on the web site listed in the code, it brings you here: http://www.imint.com/index.html

      This site is for “Java menus / navigation applets” — which is exactly what that object is.

      I have to believe your problem is do to Java. Please tell me what version you have and find out what your persmissions are set at.

    • in reply to: ie6, images not appearing #529122

      The top two are the 1×1 pixel images. The second one is not clear, but it is actually a very small blue dot.

      Since they originate from the same web site, then they MAY not be web bugs.

      They definitely are NOT a “Navigation bar”, but perhaps they are place marks for where this bar should go??

      I appears that you are NOT downloading the Navition bar. Have you set you Security settings is such a way to block downloading this?? I have very tight restriction in my Internet zone, yet I still see the blue Navigation bar.

      Let me check the codes on that page…

      Thanks, I have EraseOffice97 from Microsoft, but that still does not fix the problem…

      OK, for completeness sake, here is the entire code for the Left Navigation Menu:

      You will need to activate java to view this menu.

      It appears that the 1×1 pixels are simply being used as place marks or something equal benign. It also appears to be in plain HTML — not ActiveX or Java.

      I have no idea why you cannot see that bar. It looks fine to me on multiple computers…

    • in reply to: ie6, images not appearing #528983

      I have been discussing this on other boards. The 1×1 clear gif pixel is POSSIBLY a web bug, but some web page developers argue that they use it for other reasons as well (spacing, place-marking). So, perhaps Richard Smith, et al, are over-calling these things web bugs! I really only know what I read.

      However, you can view the source of the 1×1 clear gif in IE5.0 and above by right-clicking any where on the page and selecting “Images List”. For example, on this posting page there is only ONE image — the Woody’s Lounge name up top. It is 1390 bytes in size, 244×28 pixels, and it comes from: http://wopr.com/w3timages/lounge.gif

      Go to your page and see if you can find WHERE the 1×1 pixel gifs originate from. Web bugs generally will be coming from a site that is NOT related to the site you are viewing — e.g., http://www.doubleclick.net.

      I hope this helps.

    • in reply to: run-time error #528869

      One way to find out where it is occuring is to have the person boot-up with line-by-line confiramtion — and then see what line is causing the error.

      There are a couple of way do this. If it is Win9x, I think that can be done by opening a run box and typing “msconfig” (no quotes) and Enter. In the resulting “System Configuration Utility”, select the “Diagnostic startup – interactively load device drivers and software”. Then reboot. I think this runs you through the bootup process asking you Yes or No to each step. If you, I *think* you can trigger the same thing by holding F8 during a reboot and selecting the appropriate choice when offered.

      Once the “bad” command is run, the message should appear. If it MUST be done on a cold reboot, then obviously do it then.

      Tech support for HP scanners is quite interesting. Give it a try when you have a few DAYS or so. Usually their advice is on the level of “remove it with Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet” — eh, and that did not work…

      Just the pessimist in me!

    • in reply to: ie6, images not appearing #528819

      OK, the url you posted gets me to the “Left Navigation Frame” – which is a blue list starting with “Education/cbu.com”. This frame always appears on the left side of the main page when I visit it (the one I referenced above). Are you not seeing this frame? Is it replaced with a 1×1 pixel gif??

      Again, when I go to that “Left Navigation Frame” url, that site tries to drop a new control on to my computer and I tell it NO (sorry, but I am a security freak and I don’t want new controls on my system without my permission).

      Since you were able to capture those 1×1 gifs before, you must be able to locate them on that page. The Left Navigation Frame does NOT appear to be a 1×1 gif when I visit that site. If you find a 1×1 gif on that site, you should be able to find the source by right-click/Properties.

      There is one other way. The page below links to the “Bugnosis” program. If you install and use this, it will find 1×1 pixel gifs on any website and tell you where they are from.

    • in reply to: Missing File Error #528751

      Check out this thread on this same issue:
      http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,935126;root=winme;mode=flat

      Now, the link above will not work passed the semi-colon, so you have to copy the whole thing to your address bar. In my first post there (I am R2), I give you the MSKB article on this issue. You will note that did NOT solve the problem. For the solution, look at the end of the thread.

    • in reply to: ie6, images not appearing #528750

      OK, one of the problems is that the website in question is LOADED with ActiveX controls, ActiveX plug-ins, Active Scripting, and all kinds of other potential badness. Anyone one of these can potentially screw up your computer.

      Also, that site keeps insisting on installing some new program that I do not want on my computer!! I keep saying NO to that site.

      Additionally, I am NEVER given the option to go residential vs comercial. I am immediate wisked to residential after I enter the password.

      Once I get to the …/residential/agent/index.html page, I apparently see all the images — as best I can tell. Again, I have refused installing their special software because my browser warns me that this is a security risk…

      Even when I run my mouse pointer over the white parts of the page, I do not run into a clear.gif. This may just be bad luck.

      Go back to the page and find the clear.gif OR the bluedot.gif. Right-click and select properties to see the origin of these 1×1 pixel .gif’s. Let me know what the source of these are and tell me as best you can where I might find them on the page.
