Windows 7: Google toolbar won't show in pinned websites

Try to delete one of those pinned websites and then create a new one and let us know if any change...

ANd yes, for compatibility all 64 bit Win7 also have the 32 bit browser!

I've tried this several times. Both before and after attempting to reinstall G Toolbar. No difference.

It would appear that whenever I attempt to create a saved linked right from any version of IE, it won't reopen with Google Toolbar.

When I create a link from saving a bookmark in Chrome, then IE shows google toolbar.

Does anyone have this same experience with Google Toolbar not showing up in a pinned site in IE 9?

I'm hoping somebody can confirm they have a similar problem with Google Toolbar not showing up in IE9 when launching from a pinned website?

Or - if anyone uses Google Toolbar and it IS working - that would be helpful as well.

Many thanks

This issue bugged me a little bit.

The short answer is: "The pinned site window automatically starts an isolated instance of Internet Explorer that runs in a special mode (note that Browser Helper Objects and other toolbars are not enabled in this Internet Explorer mode)."

IE9 is a PITA when it comes to links. IE9 opens a special browser session when you launch a link THAT WAS CREATED WITH IE9. This special browser session disables BHOs and other toolbars (like Google Toolbar). If you create a link with any other browser (Chrome or even IE8), everything works fine, i.e. the Google Toolbar (and any other additional toolbars) are available.

Hey Microsoft, how about a "Settings" choice to allow other toolbars?

BTW, this isn't the only gripe I have about IE9. The list is quite long.

Chrome doesn't open a pinned site, it just creates a pinned instance of Chrome if it doesn't already exist.

IE10 also behaves the same way as IE9, even though IE10 is running in both instances at once (all the 32-bit plugins work in the 64-bit version), except the toolbars aren't present.

I post because I don't generally pin tabs, I pin programs. This behaviour is peculiar, as even AV toolbars don't load (e.g. Avast! Web Rep).

Open Internet explorer,
Use Alt+HA or Gear symbol/ About Internet explorer,
Post the results,
Yes you need both versions 32 and 64 bit,
First thing is to notice if you see any of these Blue symbols activated,

The 32 bit version is the most reliable,
Most people who use Google toolbar also enjoy using Google Bookmarks instead of pinning sites to the Taskbar along with Spell checker/ Translate.....

Avast! Web Rep is the one I was looking at. It is present in ordinary IE windows, but pinned tabs don't show any of the toolbars. Seems odd that the pinned IE tab differs from the standard one in this way.

It's not InPrivate browsing or tracking protection settings (as there are none).

Most likely is Avast but lets Reset ie just so we can be sure your on default settings first and see if this process helps contain some add-ons,
Confirm this reset process, re9aeGJg/Reset%20process.jpg?psid=1
After clicking on don't Enable add-ons,
Use Alt+TA or Gear symbol/ Manage add-ons/ Click on Show all add-ons on the middle left,
And confirm if all third party add-ons are disabled.
