what is "enable third party browser extensions..."?

  • under Internet Option>Advanced in IE6 what is the different between enable or disable of:

    Enable third party browser extensions (required restart)?

    Thanks!

  • Microsoft's web page explains what they are:

  • Yeah, that tells what it is but do we need to have it enabled or disabled for safety. If we disable it how will it effect our surfing?
  • What it does is enable you to use things such as the Google tool bar. If, you have no need for such add ons, then you untick it. But, if you WANT to use something like that, tick it.

    BTW, Google bar has a nice built in poup stopper, but be sure an uncheck all the defaults.
