Internet explorer 6 - google search buttons don't work?

Hi Folks,

Hoping someone out there has found a fix for this problem.

I've seen a few machines running IE 5.5/6 where the google search button no longer works when you click it. Hitting the return key does not work either.

Obviously this applies to other sites as well, like yahoo and hotmail, where you have to click on an "ok" button..... .

Only fixes i've found are:

1: to set the internet security settings to low, (dont like this option).

2: install firefox/mozilla - this introduces other issues though.

3: reformat and reinstall the OS.

Anybody got a simpler solution please?

TIA

JSC

The Google search bar is not an integral part of IE.
Have you tried uninstalling the Google bar and then reinstalling it ??

You can just reinstall IE if you wish. This link tells you how to do it in Win XP.

There are slightly different methods for other windows versions.

Hi there,

I'm not using the search bar. Just type in www.google.com, search for say plusnet, hit return or the search button in the browser window. Neither work.

Iif you encounter the problem, the fix is to make sure that submit nonencrypted form data is enabled in tools/internet options/internet/customlevel/

I thought you meant the Google search bar add on that you can get for IE.
