    Search from IE Address Bar problem

    Locked

    by otis.bogle ·

    Searching from my IE address bar no longer works. For example, if I key in the word

    anything

    it ends up being displayed as a search for

    http:///?%20anything

    I am sure this has been caused by one of those websites that hijack homepages etc. I have now obtained software to prevent this happening again but does anyone know how to correct the search problem ?

      1) clear your visited pages cache (history maybe too)
      2) right IE icon on destop and select properties and under the advanced tab make sure that you have search from address bar on and goto most likely site off.

      this may help you
