    I can type in the title bar but not in any forms or areas within explorer. For example i can go to google but not type in the google bar. I ran my antivirus and spyware program.

    I would care to bet you have some sorted Keylogger running in the background. Your spyware might of missed it or dont know it even exists to begin with.

    But..if that is not the case, and you are running an older version of IE, I strongly suggest upgrading to IE7 and see if the new install has the same behaviors, or install and start using Firefox.

    Any browser tied so loose and direct into the operating system like IE is, simply is worth never using again.
