Google Toolbar Interferes with OE Links? Help!

  Green 1 01:41 01 Dec 2004

As the title says, I have W98 and just put the Google toolbar on to try and when I am sent a link in OE I used to click on it and it went there, now the links no longer work, I took the toolbar off and it works ok now, can somebody tell me if perhaps I`ve set it up wrong or something? if so I will reinstall it. When I put it on I just downloaded it and it ran itself all seemed ok till I found out this problem. As you will see i`m not too techie so simple replies please. Many thanks for any replies.

It might be just a setting in OE.Double check tools options read tab. See if read all messages in plain text has a tic in it.If it does untic and check if that fixed it.

The Google toolbar has a pop up blocker in it which may mean that any window it sees opening froma link might be blocked. You could try switching off the pop up blocker.
I dont know about win 98 but in XP keeping the Ctrl key pressed whilst clicking on a link bypasses it.
