I don't see all that you are seeing, Richard, but do find menu buttons that
are not set/reset, and some other anomalies.

I wonder what we are missing by not using Vista+IE.vista+auto-installed
plugins.  It looks like you sorta need Vista installed to find out about
Vista so that you can decide to install it.
