Default WinXPsp2 / IE6

Don't know if we are in correct area; if not, please let us know where we
should post the following question.
We opened IE6 and happned to click on bottom of screen, just above status
line and a box opened titled: "Maname Add-ons" (Add-ons are programs that
extend the capabilities of your Web browser. Some add-ons can interfere with
the operation of your browser. You can disable, or enable, or update add-ons.
Disabling an add-on might prevent some Web pages from working.)
We never saw this before and noticed that there were several programs
listed. Majority of them were from Symantec and we did not disable them
because we are using Norton Security. However two listed were "Real.com" and
"Windows Messenger." We disabled these two because we do not use either of
them.
Was that OK? Also, can anyone explain what this "Add-on" is all about?
Thanks for any definitive information.

No, those two do not help. They do not appear to relate to this "Add-on"
question. By the way, wanted to correct above in my message that read:
"Maname Add-ons" It should read "Manage Add-ons."
Thanks anyway.

Alice,

Maybe this will help:

Windows XP Service Pack 2: What's New for Internet Explorer and Outlook Express
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/s...eoverview.mspx

Scroll down to "Control Add-ons Using Add-on Manager"

Thank you. That is what I was looking for, even though I do not completely
understand it.
