    The problem has been solved. We have a book called SECRET GUIDE TO COMPUTERS & TRICKY LIVING written by Russ Walter. Russ gives his phone number in New Hampshire and says to call him any time, so my husband called him. Here’s what Russ said to do . . . go to the address bar and type www.google.com, then go to Tools and click on Internet Options. On that page, under the General tab, was a box that showed the www.google.com entry. Below that was a box or button that said “Use Current.” Click on that button, and then on OK on the bottom of the page. Close everything, restart, click on the Internet Explorer “E” on the task bar, and everything returned to normal.

    Thanks for your efforts in working on the solution . . . much appreciated!
