big problems with toolbar

I need some help. I installed the new version of the toolbar and the popup blocker works too good. I can't open any new windows, especially java or applet windows. I have written google support twice and all I get is a copy and paste from the help page. I have uninstalled the toolbar and still can't get any pop ups. It seems to only affect IE6. I load IE5 and the problem goes away. The drawback to going with IE5 is I lose outlook express and can't find Outlook unless it's bundled with IE6. There has to be some file embedded in my system that is still blocking all other windows. I have gone into add/remove and tried that with no luck. I have also reset my IE6 setting to default again with no luck. If anyone else has experienced this and found a way to fix it, please let me know. I am runnung windows 98SE.

If you click on where it says # blocked on your tool bar you specify that you want popups on that site accepted (I think)

To turn off pop up blocking go to options then uncheck popups.

I've already tried that. I went and uninstalled the whole thing, but there is something that either corrupted my IE or a file is still in my system to be still blocking the pop-ups.

As a temporary fix until you can get it removed, you can hold the CTRL button as you click a link, which will disable to pop up blocker, and allow the window to open.

This has no effect either. I have tried everything that the "help" section suggests but still can't get any other windows to open. I have held the CTRL key, the shift key. both together, allow site pop ups, uninstalled the toolbar, everything.

Have you tried running Adaware? If IE is messed up after the Toolbar is uninstalled, maybe something else is wrong.

This sounds a little bit like one of the recent viruses to me - one of them disabled "open link in new window" for siome reason. Sorry, but I don't remember which one it was (to many recently), you might make sure you have a recent antivirus softwares

I agree with Astinus.

Try to get the FREE version of Adaware and run it. Might solve the problem.

If you have a magazine cdrom with the latest version of IE onboard, try installing it.

This should only take five or ten minutes with a reboot. If this fails, try uninstalling the toolbar, reinstalling IE and then reinstalling the toolbar.

I have the latest in virus protection so i don't think that's an issue. I installed Adaware 6. I have problems with that as well. After the scan it tells me I have 29 items but when I click next to take me to the delete screen, only 3 show up. I click next to delete, then the program freezes.I have downloaded it from 3 different sites with the same results. I have IE6 on a disc. I'll try installing it and see what happens then.

My two cents: I have tried both Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy. I have had much better results using spybot.

Well then maybe you can hold my hand to walk me through it!
I just ran spy bot amd removed 35 items but it still will not work. Leedslad, The toolbar is simple but like I have stated, I hold CTRL and/or shift, I have clicked on the "allow site pop ups" I have uninstalled and re-installed, I have followed everything in the help section to a "T" and it DOES NOT WORK.

I have since written google a fourth time and have yet to get a reply back other than them pasting the entire help section into the e-mail.

I agree with Macrost - I enjoy spybot search and destroy.

Keep in mind folks, that some programs you download may come packaged with ad/spyware so if you run a program like spybot and eradicate the ad/spyware that came with it, the program itself may no longer function correctly. I've experienced with a certain AOL instant messenger ad on program. Always read those user agreements..

Sounds like that toolbar needs an exorcist.

I was having the exact same issue with my toolbar installation. l just found the solution. You have to re-register a couple of dll files. I followed the resolution instructions at [support.microsoft.com...] and it resolved any problem. I reinstalled the toolbar and it seems to be working fine now.
