Our computer guy has been trying to figure out what the problem is. The only thing he could think of was that a 3rd party add on was the problem. And that was the google tool bar. Today he removed the tool bar and the browser works perfect.
I had the tool bar for many months with no problems and I really hate to give it up. I want my tool bar back and I also want my IE6 to function. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
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 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).
