Hello all

Here's my problem: I have two accounts on my home PC, administrator account - (mine)
and a limited user account for my girlfriend. For months IE has worked on both accounts
without any gliches. However, this week my girlfriend discovered that when using
her account the google searches she tried to run would not longer do anything. In
a nutshell the buttons (i assume the java controlled buttons) on the google page
don't work anymore? The same is true of Yahoo and many other sites, where i can't
log into my mail account for the same reason.

The internet connection is fine, I tried resetting all the internet options to default,
resetting my ZoneAlarm firewall and every other setting i could think of. I don't
use Windows firewall so i ruled that out - no joy!

The thing that really throws me though is that my account is completely unaffected?
My searches and buttons work fine, so the problem is limited to local limited accounts?
I tried deleting my girlfriends account and creating another, but the same problem

I have run Ad-Aware Pro, Spy-Bot and Norton antivirus and system works, which all
turned up nothing. I ran all the above on both mine and her account with admin rights
across the board.

Im running XP pro SP 2, but i've been on SP 2 for months now, so i don't think thats
a problem.

I don't know what else to say, i have tried everything and can think of nothing else
to add. If any of you have any suggestions please throw them this way!

Thanks in advance.
