Hello! I'm not computer savvy at all so please be gentle with me if this is a stupid question. I have the latest version of Firefox. My Google search box at the top right of the page stopped working. It will not search. It does NOTHING. After researching this, I found that this is not unusual for Firefox users: for the Google search box to stop working from time to time. So, I went to the Google website. Same thing. No search results. Just a blank page with "Done" at the bottom. Bing. Same thing. Yahoo. Same thing. The only search engine that I can get to work on my computer is HotBot and I can't even search for images on THAT. This all started happening about a week ago. Please, somebody help me. I'm completely baffled and at my wits end.
Search Engines Won't Work(9 posts)
OK, guys. I created a new admin account and still no search engines are working. I also uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Still not working. Some other things that are happening: computer is crashing 3-4 times a day. The black screen where it says "Start in Safe Mode" comes up. There are other strange things that are happening that I can't remember right off the top of my head. Whenever they occur again, I will post them. Anybody have any new ideas? Someone mentioned the Conficker virus. Could this be it? This all started after I visited a MySpace comments website. The computer went nuts while I was on it. I have tried downloading all sorts of virus removers and have ran them all but nothing is working.
