I have IE 6.0 using Windows XP SP2.
I recently purchased some software to submit my websites to search engines called submit wolf. I had problems with it and had to return it. It had installed a search engine tool bar over my location bar in browser (where the current url visited is displayed). Now that their software is gone, the location bar is gone all together, and checking address bar in view menu is not bringing it back.
How do I bring it back?
