Hi ... Please help!!! Un able to search from address bar in internet explorer 6.0. After typing in a word (or words) to search, the browser shows an hourglass or sometimes brings back results such as "http:///?%20computers" with page not found error. I have checked all ie settings and tried re-setting ie to ie defaults.

I have read the FAQ here following directions and have run current versions of both pest patrol, spybot and ad-aware and spyware blaster all with the latest updates. These programs found and removed spyware and adware, but did not solve the ie address bar search problem (running Windows XP Home and ie 6.0 with latest updates)

My HijackThis log is shown below. Thank you for your help! :cool:

I've got the same danged problem. Not real serious, annoying as hell though. I forgot how much effort it is to type "www.google.com" LOL!!! Look forward to someone responding with the killer cure.
