    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Maybe doing a Windows repair will fix the problem. Instuctions for this can be found HERE.

    simple solution

    use mozilla firefox :)
  6. better tools

    are you sure this happened after you edited the registry?
    it could be more spyware.
    In that case ad-aware or spybot might work.
    Use them rather than manually editing the registry in future
    and of course:

    had a friend with same problem, but no registry edit, try moving the toolbars around, its there, just hidden, was a long time ago, so i forget exactly how i did it, not sure if they are locked or what, but drag the bottom toolbar down, and move the lines, u should find it.
