I am running Windows XP and when I went into Explorer to log into a website, the http. window was gone. There is no way to access a website. The search windows are still there for Google and Yahoo but now I have an icon on the taskbar that says "Activate IE plugin Desktop Toolbar". What the heck happened????? How can I get my address window back? H E L P !!!! :mad:

You must have disabled the Address Bar. Open IE and right click the menu and check Address Bar. That should fix it.

I have the same problem. You say "right click the menu". I don't see any "menu"...all I have is "file, edit, view, favorites, tools and help" Where's the "MENU"?

I found out the hard way what was wrong with my missing address bar. I had multiple spyware items and a virus. It was also eating up my Photoshop. When a friend cleaned everythng out, the address bar and Photoshop returned. I now have Spysweeper and Norton Automatic Updates running constantly. Everything's running smoothly. Thanks everyone for all of your suggestions.
