    My pc in its infinate wisdom had decided to update my Internet Explorer to version 7, in doing so now I cannot type an address into the address bar, i can actually type the address but when I hit enter, nothing happens!

    I'm on win xp 64 in case anyone has a fix....

    Here's your best resolution:

    Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add Remove Programs>IE7.

    Worked on my machine - back on good old IE6, no problems:hi:

    I know that one mate! Been there before.

    Have a better solution now.... Google for Mozilla Firefox, installed it and it works MUCH MUCH better than IE!

    I installed it and it made all my shortcuts dissapear on my desktop.

    Plus I lost all my favourites and it wrecked my Half life game too.

    I'm back on 6 now. I installed firefox but that is not perfect, on my computer anyway.

    Microsoft seem to release things too soon recently.

    i was using firefox on my old pc as i was running XP Home and wireless broadband on a desktop running 64meg of ram

    firefox ran 1,000,000 times faster in that situation (having the tabs rather than to browser windows before IE7 came out)

    now running IE7 without problems but may switch back to Firefox v2.0 at some point

    never got on with Thunderbird tho

    I've noticed that IE7 seems to randomly open extra tabs all of its own. Very kind of it.
