Back button doesn't work anymore

  1. Running Win XP with all updates.
    Recently, the 'back button' on all WebPages quit working; nothing happens
    when I click on 'Back'.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  2. Check to make sure pages aren't opening in a new window that is covering

    try on internet options, clear cache & cookies; clear history, restore
    defaults, reset web settings or try repairing your ie

    on run just type:
    sfc /scannow

    I was told by a wise old man---what is done is done,don't look
    back,forwards is the direction to go.
    Going back serves no purpose,you made your choice,stand by it.
