Default IE 7 problem

When launching IE 7 receive " add-ons are disabled " message, restarting IE produces the same message. In tools the Manage add-ons selection is grayed out. Any suggestions on enabling add-ons?

Raffaz, you didn't read the post completely. It's greyed out.

Now, there's two options fir Internet explorer. The normal one, and the no addons one. If the link in the Start menu says IE, and there's no addons, try going into IE's folder and open iexplore. If that does, add the shortcut to the Start menu and delete the old one.

i have found when this occurs, going to launch IE 7 throught the all programs menu (START<ALL PROGRAMS<INTERNET EXPLORER) usually brings back the addons.
