I'm hoping that someone has dealt (successfully)with this. I just re-imaged my laptop. OS is XP Pro sp2. Using IE6. I am unable to type in text boxes in IE6 such as MSN search box, Google search box, really any form text box. I have installed all Windows updates. Tried IE7 and it will not open at all and tried IE8 which has formatting issues with web pages. MSN search box is also out of place when I view it with IE6. I'm using Firefox 3.0.7 right now and love it but I need IE to work correctly as I am a web developer and need to check browser compatibility. I Googled this issue and found a ton of search results with no solutions. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks for reading!

If at first you don't succeed...that's what I would do.

You may spend all day looking for a fix for something that falls under the heading of "corrupted system files." How long does it take to try again?

Imaging software is not guaranteed to get it right every time, which is why users who utilize such for backup...are often advised to check to ensure that the backup is accessible and works properly.
