Did anyone find out what was causing the problem cos I've got exactly the same. Restarting the machine hasn't solved it and yes, I just get the letter O in the top blue title bar.
Any help much appreciated.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
that's my only advice on this one..i've never seen this issue..and am trying to research it...with no luck

Many thanks for the advice. I followed all the steps in the malware forum and installed Microsoft updates last night, (having had a new hard disc on Monday I'd already done this but they found more that were needed), with no effect.
This morning I decided to try reinstalling IE but before I could Microsoft had found yet more critical updates. I did those, IE refused to reinstall as it said I had a newer version and bingo! up popped the full titles again.
There's something about it in Microsoft support http://support.micro...com/kb/q225123/ but it's only for IE5 and I didn't have any of the causes on my machine.
Thank you once again.

the confidence to even try this dangerous fix. the MKB (referenced in an earlier post ) mentioned that some software could add Run commands in both the Current User and Local Machine areas of the registry. I didnt have any of that software. Taking a chance, I edited the value of the Window Title key in Current User "R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Window Title = Microsoft Internet Explorer" and left it blank. In the Local Machine key, I changed the value to: (value not set).
It had originally had the same "Microsoft Internet Explorer " as a value. I hope this helps anyone else with the problem, it was a bear to diagnose. I had tried the spyware, adware searches, but it didnt help. I think this was a glitch in the upgrade from ME to XP, but I dont know exactly how the registry became corrupted on those 2 lines.

If so, try uninstalling it.
