What was the name of the virus joec? Also what is your operating system and service pack and what browser and version are you using?
I had a frind to remove it so I do not know the name. I got the virus from Scout which is a page about college sports. I use Internet Explorer and Windows 7. My home page is igoogle.
OK no problem. I hope this is Windows 7 SP1? You can tell that by right-clicking the desktop Computer icon or the one in the Start Menu and then selecting Properties.
Open Internet Explorer and go to Help/About and tell me the version number.
Also got to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click Reset , Apply and OK any prompts.
Close and reopen IE and go to Tools/Manage Add-Ons and re-enable any you need.
See if that helps.
I use Windows 7 Premium Home. I had already tried reset to no avail. This one really has me perplexed. It was fine until the virus. Now, I can't get the sections under the tabs to appear.
So you don't have Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed in Windows 7? If not please read here for tips and a link to its download: https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-2205
That could be half the reason this is happening.
I also asked what version of Internet Explorer. If it is 8 try updating to 9 from Microsoft's website. http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/default.aspx
That could be the other half of the reason.
Sorry Peter. I am not the most computer saavy person. I appreciate you hanging in there with me. I do have Service Pack 1. I wasn't sure about what version I had for IE and attempted to download 9. When I did so, I was told I already had this version. Even so, I still have the problem.
If not check these:
2. Flash Player: Test it here: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ it will install the latest if you don't have it.
3. Shockwave Player: Test it here: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ again it will install if not already there.
Close and reopen the browser and try iGoogle again.
If you still get problems I think perhaps you might want to ask them also: http://support.google.com/websearch/?hl=en
