Specs: Windows XP SP3, Pent 4 / 2.8GHz / 1.0GB
Entering anything in browser search box will not bring up list of websites and if it should cannot get any listings to load. Can only use Favorites to load a page and then change page address to another URL if known. Don't know if this problem is Google or Bing related. So many search engines now depend on one or the other of those. My homepage was Google when problem began. Google will not open by any means. Now using AVG Search as home page, but it only allows me to open Favorites or Bookmarks. Will not respond to anything entered in search window.

Try System Restore - choose a date prior to when the problem was first noticed.

Thanks for your response, phil22. I completed a system restore to a point a month back, approximately two weeks before the issue cropped up. Sorry to say, system restore reported no changes were made to the computer.
