So I took a break from my PC for about 2 days while i was working on my new PC. Just decided to get back on it and for some random reason IE wont work?

Firefox does, no problem but when i open IE and then type in a page, nothing works?lol

It just does nothing..not even "thinking" or loading.. just nothing...

Any ideas?

PS.. the last time i was on the PC I had hard shut down by mistake (pulled out the power cord).. But everything else is fine?

After the latest windows update the other day my IE stopped working just like your symptoms and I found out that Google tool bar was the culprit.
Try going into Control Panel /Internet options/Programs/Manage Add-ons and disable Google Tool bar if you have it or just reset in Advanced option then see if it works.
I even uninstalled Google tool bar and downloaded the latest version but I cannot get IE to work with it now no matter what I try.
So I just go without now.

Add/Remove Programs -> Turn Windows features on/off -> Uncheck IE.

All problems solved forever

Thanks for the reply..

Can either of you give me the exact path to disabling Google toolbar? Im running windows 7. I can't seem to find either of the paths your suggesting..

Edit: I don't want to remove or stop you IE. I prefer it and also have tons of favorites in it so removing or not using IE isn't my number one choice if possible.
