The name of the program is Icon Restore, recommended by Ravencajun in 2010.
As to spell check, in XP I had a icon (symbol) in the Google toolbar that I could check to review my work when I responded to a message for example in the forums.
As to saving the address, I get that message on the bottom of my computer, asking me if I want the computer to save the address in the computer. I then am suppose go to tools, to internet option, to connections then to a box (which I do not have) to ok the request.
Hope that clears up the questions.

When I went looking for info about Icon Restore, what I found indicated that it is old software no longer being updated by it's creator and does not work reliably on a 64-bit system (your win 7 is probably 64-bit but your XP computer was not).

I had to go back to IE (which I almost never use) to discover that it does not HIGHLIGHT a spelling error in a forum post. Firefox does, which is one of several reasons why I don't want or need a toolbar. I have never needed a toolbar in a browser...they take up space unnecessarily, are confusing and not all that reliable and in general just a big pain. You would do well to learn to live without one, in my opinion. I suspect that spell check is in the just haven't found it yet.

When you say saving the address...I think you mean saving the address of a web page in Internet Explorer... then you should enable the MENU BAR and learn how to add-delete-organize web pages in your FAVORITES MENU.

Went to Google toolbar etc, but now have spell check . Lost favorites bar, but I can get them by clicking the little star upper right hand corner.
