Google not working ...Neither the google bar nor opening google through address bar is working. When searching in google, the page seems to load for some time, but then nothing 'loads'. All I get is a blank page.
Clearing cookies, cache or reintalling opera or ini file doesn't help. From other forum I learnt that google desktop may be causing this problem. But I can't uninstall google desktop and can't do without googling either.
Would be forced to migrate from my all time favorite opera to firefox. Please help me fix this problem.
For the records, this is my computing environment. I access internet through high speed broadband corporate LAN. I'm under cyber roam firewall of my institute. I use Avant Antivirus and Spyware Doctor. Google dektop is also installed. I have Compaq v3155au laptop. AMD Turion 64 bit, 512 MB RAM, NVidia G-Force graphics card.
But the bottom line is THINGS WERE FINE WITH ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED CONFIGURATION. Google stopped working out of the blue ...
Hope this works for you.

I was having the same problem, but think I have resolved it. In Google desktop, go to "Desktop Preferences" choose the "Display" tab, scroll down the page and uncheck the box beside "Show Desktop Search results on Google Web Search result pages." (I had to do this several times before Google desktop would save this preference permanently, but now all seems to be working fine.)
Hope this works for you.
Thanks! Although the solution you suggested did make sense, it didn't work on my comp. Had to uninstall Google Desktop. :-( Have retained the index though, so that if I need to search my comp, I could reinstall Google Desktop and much re-indexing won't be required.
After this 'sacrifice' now Google search is working fine in Opera.
Enjoy Opera on Win Xp(always latest version)
