Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

I can't search in my address bar anymore. I have Windows XP, Int

I can't search in my address bar anymore. I have Windows XP, Internet Explorer 7. Under Internet Options, it is NOT checked for ''do not search in the address bar''. I cleaned up the registry files (using wise disk cleaner) because I installed more RAM and my computer was still going slow. I think that it must have done something to the registry. I did a system restore and it still doesn't work. The default search is set to google, which is what it was before, yet when I type something in the address bar, it says http:///?%20type%20something and address not valid.

    Ok, I fixed it myself. I updated my Internet Explorer to 8 and now it works fine. Don't know why or how, but I'm happy as long as it works.

If you are using the address bar to search, you should use a browser such as Google Chrome. Internet explorer does not have the capability to do this as quick. Try upgrading to a newer IE to be able to do this

Sometimes these IP address 192.168.1.1 when you type it in the address bar don't work in internet browser like mozilla firefox and ggogle chrome.

If you are using windows xp... use the "e explorer" (internet explorer) as your browser

2. Click on start search box (run in xp)
3. Type cmd in the box
4. Right click the black icon up at the top
5. Click on run as administrator
6. Click on continue

Hi,
Try to restore the PC to an earlier state by using system restore. If that doesn't help, you'll have to repair the XP installation using the original XP CD
