My software: IE9 running on Windows 7.

This annoying message comes in bursts of 4/5 dialog boxes:

Toolbar settings cannot be stored online because your daily update quota has been exceeded.

[I think it means the Google toolbar, which is indeed installed]

It started for me on January 10th 2013.

  • Wacky theory, the message occurs sometimes if I open both Firefox and IE9.

  • Another wacky theory Google’s keywords tool triggers the message.

  • A slight possibility is that the messages started after I made a rare visit to my Chrome browser.

Troubleshooting so far: Googled! Saw this unhelpful thread.

Closing and opening the IE9 browser helps, as does disabling / enabling the toolbar.

Question: Aside from disabling the toolbar permenently, what can I do to cure this problem?

Update: I now have a Screenshot

5 days later the problem has not re-occured, hence no screen shot. My latest theory is that disable / enable fixed it. – Guy Thomas Jan 16 '13 at 8:35
In that case there is no way that we can troubleshoot it - probably a google bug that you "fixed". – harrymc Jan 16 '13 at 12:25
@harrymc The thing is I am not alone, there must be a dozen others who have reported the problem on the internet; and I would guess, a 100 who have seen the problem but not reported it. – Guy Thomas Jan 16 '13 at 12:29

I found that this problem was already reported many times on the google forums, with never an answer.

If the bug has disappeared, then it is probable that it was silently corrected on the google servers and will never happen again (until re-introduced).

At least a dozen reports of this problem, thus it is a real occurance. Probably 30+ people seeking a solution, without success, thus it seems to me there is no easy fix as of January 2012. – Guy Thomas Jan 22 '13 at 21:32
