Maybe they changed something that my Firewall doesn't like but I dont't want to change my firewall settings.
Is anybody having those problems not using a firewall?
The toolbar is not working on a Windows 98 machine so maybe the problem only occurs with this OS (MarkHutch mentioned that he had the problem after a Windows update on his Windows 98 machine too)?
Anybody else having the same kind of problems with no Windows 98?
Any other ideas what might be the reason why from one day to another the toolbar should not be working anymore?
It also has an option for Pagerank through Proxy (experimental). Maybe this helps some of the people having no PR on their toolbar.
For me I am still not seeing any PR for any site. But at least it looks like somebody might be working on it.
But it looks like they solved our problem with the latest toolbar update we got a week ago (though we only realised that it is working now after deleting the entry in the hosts file again).
Ok I uninstalled the toolbar, deleted the .dll file and deleted all registry stuff for Google. Then I reinstalled the toolbar and still it won't work. Oh well.
I had this problem once. Noting I did seemed to help. Eventually had to reinstall windows.
After having a though about the whole issue, the only possible cause which might have triggered this was that I was constantly changing the Google DC ips in the hosts files for checking the Pr values. I have stopped doing that now.
Turns out it was the hosts file in my case also. I tried a few different data centre IP's with no luck (gray bar remained), but finally got success with 22.214.171.124
