  1. IE Address Bar search w/Google

    I had change my IE address bar search to use Google by going to clicking on the "search" button, clicking on "Customize" and then clicking on "AutoSearch settings".

    All has been fine for months but now when I type in a word into the Address window it adds a "www" & ".com" to it and directs me to a web site.

    Any ideas to get Google back?

    You might try looking under Internet Options->Advanced->Search from address Bar->When Searching, & be sure it doesn't say "Just goto most likely site."

    Also go back and be sure that your google settings are there. Pop open the search sidebar and see that it loads google, check through the customize settings again just for security.

    Hope this helps some. Something tells me it won't help, but hey it's a start.
