After installing several new search engines, ie My Way, which was supposed search 15 engines at one time, and others, it was taking up too much space on my browser so I decided to uninstall them. Then when I wanted to get on Internet Explorer, it would not respond at all.I couldn't get to any internet site.
If it were me I'd just do a fresh install of my operating system. If its difficult to back up files then try this... go in to Add/remove programs in the controll pannel and go to windows components. Remove Internet explorer... shut down... then reinstall it. If that doesnt work.... just backup and reinstall...(I do it once a month anyway...)
