I ignored it and google worked fine in a few days. This can really upset folk that want everything to work all the time.
If you want, try picking over results like https://www.google.com/#q=google+logo+not+showing+up
I am helping my neighbor with her new laptop, moving pictures, files, etc. from her old one to her new one. Everything looks good, except for one thing: I set Google as her home page, and it works fine, except that the Google logo does not appear; instead, there is the small box with an "x" in it. I have tried the following: Tools-> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Reset....to no avail. I have also tried the above pathway, then checking to assure that the "Show Pictures" option is checked in "Multimedia," also to no avail. I have also gone to Tools -> Compatibility View Settings -> then added 'Google.com' -> Add" ...also to no avail. So now I'm out of ideas. Other websites, such as Amazon or whatever show up fine, with pictures and all. Any ideas? Help would be much appreciated.
