XP Sp3 Home and running IE8. Right clicking toolbar doesn't show up address bar for me. Read something about EU legalities etc., and after Sp3 it's not shown in the dropdown menus?
I'd go for a restore in internet options--advanced tab. You'll lose your saved passwords and have to enable your wanted addons again. Another thing I've found is after an IE restore I've had to re-install Ie spell 'over the top'.

Hi everyone, can anyone help, I appear to have lost my toolbar at top of screen. At the moment I have 'file edit view etc, next line back forward etc then Google search bar which I have had for a while. The missing toolbar went missing last night, I have done the right click on space at top of screen and what shows is as follows 'Standard buttons' address bar'links' Google toolbar'. The only one not ticked is the links , underneath these is 'lock the toolbar'and 'customize'.
At the moment I can't type any addresses
I am running XP sp3
Help please
