Address Bar in Internet Explorer is Blank

  Rickyv 18:33 22 Nov 03

When i open IE6 the address bar is empty. I have to click on the arrow and highlight an address before i can surf. Even if i click on 'Home' nothing happens, unless i enter an address manually.

Can you help please - i am new to all this!!

Your Home page might be set to "About Blank". Type in your home page and when it appears Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab and click the Use Current button.

I checked this - it is set to Freeserve's home page - any other ideas??

On the start menu (not the desktop) right click Internet Explorer and click Properties.

You should see in Target:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" (with the quotes)

But do you have "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome ?

If so delete the -no home.

Nice Try - but unfortunately i have exactly what you typed - without the no home! The only difference is the iexplore.exe" is in capitals on my system. Any other ideas??
