IE 6 Browser Search Link Problem ?

  JIM 14:23 10 Sep 2003

Using the IE6 Browser for and trying to use the search facility box or clicking on the links of that page (listed below) produces no results (no movement)


Advanced Search/Preferences/Language Tools)

Clicking on any other link in that Google web page will run ok.(as listed below)

(Advertise with Us - Business Solutions - Services & Tools - Jobs, Press, & Help Make Google Your Homepage! etc.

The same problem applies to the search box in yahoo search and M/S home search BOX which is strange as there is no problem in doing the same in the Aol browser for all sites. (Aol checked out, no problems)

Stuck on the answer to problem for not doing likewise in IE. Presumed that the internet options were incorrectly set for IE6 but no success so far after reseting IE or after re-install of IE6 with Win XP + Service pack and all updates etc.

Download manager software called StarDownloader was the culprit which produced problems with Google/Yahoo and even PCadvisor.After a uninstall and reboot all is back to normal.

Poss, StarDownloader had become corrupted or after downloading many critical update of late,something did not gel.Time to :) again.
