Okay, so I downloaded IE 7.0. I actually like it but I have a problem. I can type in an address but I can't go anywhere. If I highlight the current address I can type in a new one. If I hit enter it just highlights the address I typed in. If I click the green arrow go button, it does nothing. This is very annoying. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a fix?

***edit***

Sorry, didn't realize this wasn't part of XP. Maybe you should sticky a note about 7.0 in the XP forum. Just a suggestion.

Well, a few people looked but no answers. I have uninstalled 7.0 and am wondering if I should reinstall 7.0. What do you think?

Well, I reinstalled 7.0. The address bar still doesn't work. Anyone have a suggestion?

Has anyone else run across this problem? Surely I can't be the only one.

I'm afraid I'm clueless. IE7 doesn't have that problem for me. You don't see the word "connecting" on the tab right after you hit enter?

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem, where typing a url into the address bar does nothing but highlight the address- IE 7 doesn't go anywhere unless I go to "file" "open" and then type the url there.

I've uninstalled and re-installed IE7, to no avail...

Hi quesoburgesa and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

Have you tried IE7 without add-ons?
Click the IE icon on the desktop and choose Start Without Add-ons.

Also do a thorough malware/spyware check.
This is a good Micro$oft Article about unexplained computer behavior.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Common causes are Nvidia and Kerio firewalls as well as various HP softwares interfering with Verclsid.exe, which the address bar uses when manually entering a url, then hitting Enter or Go.
See this article (symptom #5).
