    That should work. Did you restart IE? Close down the Internet and uncheck that. REcheck it. Restart IE. You should get the box. If not , repair IE.
    Go to control Panel>Add REmove Programs and scrol to the Ie entry. Click remove. A box with three choices will appear. Choose Repair.

    IF that doesn't work, post back.
