Nope. No problem here.
Have you run adaware from lavasoft, yet?
Even when you uninstall your spyware programs (like alexa toolbar,gator, etc.), they still leave remnants on your system that keep trying to phone home.
Could be a previous software program that is conflicting with the toolbar, and not the toolbar conflicting with your IE.
Run adaware, re-install the toolbar, and let us know if this works.

I have had big ugly problems with conflict of toolbars.
I would say its not the google bar, but some other thing that got installed like the previous guy mentioned.
I suggest your reinstall IE6 (which isn't easy) .
Do a google search to find out how :).. . It has to do with changing HKEY numbers for a while and so on. But its something you have to do.
Yes i love the google tool bar too :)

Try the small fix first (run Adaware), then, if that doesn't help, try the big fix (reinstall IE6). Reinstalling IE6 may not help, because the spyware residue lies in your registry, and getting rid of IE6 won't necessarily get rid of the spyware reg keys (They were designed to stay put, even if you uninstall the spyware program itself).

There is also a known conflict with the use of the cookie blocker in IE 6. We have "Cookie Pal" installed which sets certain default settings which will then hang pages. If this could be the problem go to the Cookie Pal web site and you'll find complete instructions on how to reset the defaults.

Go to Add/Remove Programs and there is a "Repair" options for IE6. Other than the cookie blocker, 5.5 is adequate IMO.

Speaking of the Google toobar, can it be turned on and off? Or is it always on once installed?
