Resolved Question

Google stopped responding to IE9

by michhala / January 16, 2013 10:06 AM PST

Google stopped responding to IE 9 on my Windows 7 PC last night. Since it responds to my iPhone, I know the website is OK. All other websites respond. I am forced to use Bing, but I want Google. Anyone have any ideas about what could be wrong?

My thanks.......Miki

The problem I have with IE is malware.

Years and 9 or more versions and they lost long ago to Firefox, Chrome, Seamonkey and other browsers. You're not alone with the "what the heck is going on now?" question but try the usual.

In IE, find the reset settings button and clear the caches.

All is well with Google now....

It seems as if their daily "Doodle" was preventing me from getting on Google. They just went back to the standard "Google" heading on their page, and problem solved. The "Doodle" heading was not on Google's mobile app.

Thank you, Bob for replying....Miki
