    Hi
    I'm sure this must be around but I can't find it, as trying to find a
    solution to a "find" problem is a nightmare.
    I have downloaded several copies of IE8 and all of them show the same error,
    when I put the CTRL+F command to search the current page it opens a blank
    toolbar that cannot be removed save by closing down the browser window.
    Where is the "find on this page" gone and is there a patch to fix this.
    Thanks

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) when posting in a forum or newsgroup. Please do
    so in your next reply.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Why **always**?

    Knowing the Windows version is not **always** needed in order to answer a
    question.

    IE8 is pretty much IE8 regardless of the OS. This is also a relatively known
    issue that, if everything else is OK, is usually a registration issue. I've
    only seen it once but reregistration corrected it. See the post about an
    hour before yours for a link.

    HTH,

    Twayne
