In Internet Explorer 8, if you double-click the desktop icon to start Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 8 may start in "No Add-ons" mode and display the following message:


Internet Explorer is currently running without add-ons

All Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls or toolbars, are turned off. Some web pages might not display correctly.

To continue to your home page, click the Home button.

To browse using add-ons, close Internet Explorer and then start it again.


In certain scenarios, the installation of Internet Explorer 8 may create a desktop icon with an incorrect link that unintentionally starts Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode.
