    I know I asked this question before, but I forgot to subscribe to thread, and if someone answered it, I probably missed it, so here it goes again :/
    After I installed SP2, everything else seems to be working, except the "status bar" in explorer is not showing up anymore. However, it is working fine in Internet explorer... and I should metion that when I set "status bar" to show up, it works until I close the window, then it would not remember the setting. (Even when I do "apply to all folders / remember folder setting, whatever")
    Anyone help? I really miss seeing the size of files and stuff there... ;)

    Since IE is closely integrated you could try this:

    1. Open only one Internet Explorer window
    2. Click the View menu
    3. Click Status Bar
    4. Right-click the Toolbar in Internet Explorer
    5. Select Lock the Toolbars from the context menu
    6. Hold down the CTRL key and click the Close X button at the upper right corner of IE. IE will close.
    7. Right-click the main Start button
    8. Select Explore from the context menu. Explorer window will open.
    9. Click the View menu in Explorer
    10. Click Status Bar
    11. Click Tools menu in Explorer
    12. Click Folder Options
    13. Select the View tab
    14. Click the Apply to all folders button
    15. Click OK to confirm
    16. Open IE again
    17. Right-click the Toolbar again
    18. Select Lock the Toolbars from the context menu again
    19. Hold down the CTRL key and click the Close X button at the upper right corner of IE. IE will close.

    Just added that reg key into my registry.
    I guess when I restart, I should be seeing a diff.
