Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 RC Questions

Internet Explorer 9 RC Questions

I updated from Beta a couple of days ago and the RC release works much better. It's also quite a bit nicer than IE8.

I have a couple of questions.

In reference to Tracking Protection, under Safety options, is there a way to add my own list or filter like in the IE8 and IE9 Beta InPrivate Filtering option? I've added lists from Albine, EasyList and PrivacyChoice but they don't block the static and streaming ads that my IE8 filter did. If they can add lists I would think there must be a way to add my own custom list.

I'm noticing that when I go to many web pages (including this one) or when I bookmark a site, all the icons on my desktop are refreshed. This was not happening with the Beta version, is anyone else seeing this or know what's going on?

Rule #19

Sorry we can't help you with this one.

Windows Explorer questions
I have to confess after a year I still don't understand the changes in Windows Explorer in Windows 7. This is partly because my company uses an older version of Windows, so most of my time is spent in XP. The main things I don't get are: Why sorting by date modified often gives the wrong...

Questions: Changing start menu & Explorer
Hi, I bought new computer yesterday and I don`t like the start menu so I changed it to the XP version (after looking it up on the Internet). But when I should've left well enough alone, the menu was changed, and several hours later, I'm trying to see what I did wrong. 1. My first...
