I'm running IE7 on an XP. I had been using the Site Advisor free plug-in and I had no problems placing it on the toolbar wherever I wanted.
But now I have Total Protection with Site Advisor Plus and no matter what I do, I can't get Site Advisor to stay where I want it. I unlock the toolbar, move Site Advisor to where I want it, and then lock the toolbar. But when I open IE7 or refresh the page, it moves Site Advisor back to a new line (taking up an entire line).
Apparently, it was my Netcraft toolbar that was being difficult. To fix it, I 1. Removed the Netcraft toolbar from View --> Toolbars 2. Disabled the Netcraft toolbar from Tools --> Manage Add-ons 3. Closed IE7; opened IE7 4. Unlocked toolbars; moved SiteAdvisor to where I wanted it (on the same line as my other short toolbars); locked toolbars 5. Closed IE7; opened IE7 6. Enabled the Netcraft toolbar from Tools --> Manage Add-ons 7. Added the Netcraft toolbar from View --> Toolbars
I just wanted to post how I fixed it in case anyone else has a similar problem with Netcraft or other toolbars interfering with the placement of the SiteAdvisor toolbar. I don't know which of the steps were necessary in fixing it and which weren't, but this worked for me. Apparently, Netcraft insists on being added last.
