Since Friday I have not been able to run Firefox 7.01 when Nectar Search Bar is installed, I was ok in the morning but after re booting the PC in the after noon Firefox crashed as soon as it was loaded. The only way out was to uninstall and reinstall. This problem now occurs when I install the Nectar Search Bar. This morning I was advised by Nectar to create a new profile for Firefox and they run it, this was ok, but as soon as Nectar was installed it crashed again, no other add ons had been installed. I have now lost all my Icons on the left of bar, and had to reinstate them, however, I am unable to get one back for IE all I have is the one that looks like a box with 3 dots on it. I have tried to repair IE but have not been able to re-install it as each time the installer stops and reports IE 9 is already installed.
How can I overcome all these problems.
For IE I'd try going to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and then run IE with no add-ons. If it opens then go to tools, internet options, advanced tab and then restore IE through the reset tab. If it works then ok, otherwise follow northumbria61's suggestion. If you don't have Trusteer Rapport then possibly the Nectar Search bar might not be worth the hassle.
FireFox is now on version 8.
I had the same problem with the Nectar toolbar on Firefox and had to go into safe mode to delete it, it's the same with Firefox 8 as well, I think the toolbar had an update and this is what is causing the problem and I've given up on it now
