    I've lost my GOOGLE address bar!


    This may sound bizarre, but I've lost & cannot regain my GOOGLE address bar (not the search, mind you) as my browser was somehow recently hijacked!
    I have gone to VIEW>TOOLBARS and address bar is checkmarked. This has me somewhat perplexed. If I am experiencing some sort of brain farts, I certainly hope someone has some "mental antacid" for me!

    I have the same problem all the time.
    its a bug with IE

    just close all your browers, then open them again.

    then click view toolbars, and deselect it, then reselect it, it should come back!

    Red face Now I see it, now I don't address bar ...


    After I downloaded some cute little Smilies I noticed that the space designated for entering a web address had disappeared. After a great deal of frustration I did actually get it back by clicking off the address bar and then clicking it back on,but it is necesary to do this each time I go on-line. Is there a permanent cure? I tried your method as well, except I'm not sure what 'turning off browsers' means. I haven't seen anything called that in the menu pull-downs or on a toolbar. Do you have any further advice?

    De-install the smileys (might be too late though), download a good spyware killer like Spybot Search & Destroy and zap the nasties with that.

    And o yeah, use Firefox instead of IE for now. That browser is less susceptible to hijacking and stuff...

    By the way, you revived a pretty old thread there - LOL Never mind...

    I hate the fact that they dont make it clear that you are installing scumware with the smilies.
    They use the fact that nobody reads the agreements and that they just click yes.

    Gunna have to setup some kind of download like that
