IE6 and Desktop Search

  Chris Clayton 18:21 19 Dec 05

After I installed MSN Desktop Search as recommended in PC Advisor I found IE had got damaged. It closes immediatly or very soon after launch and has become virtually unusable. I am accessing this Forum with the OffByOne browser, also recommended in the magazine.

What do I do to repair or restore IE6 please?

Thanks. I now know how to try repairing IE6 if necessary in future. However I have established that the problem was not caused by Desktop Search but by the Netcraft Toolbar, a defence against phishing. When this toolbar is turned off the problem goes away.
