Check for virus and trojans - many alter the searching on IE or install themselves so it does not work properly.

Or just use www.google.co.uk like everyone else.

Do you get a reasonable list of recent URLs when you click on the arrow at the end of the IE address box?
Have you cleared History or set it to clear at an interval?

Microsoft admits to a dll error

IE still just comes back with loads of search results as if I have the "just display results in window" option selected.

Microsoft gave me a link to follow which ran an Option to repair IE but it has made no difference though admitted an error within IE so I am none the wiser.

1/ Flush the DNS cache (ipconfig /flush dns frm command prompt)
2/ In tools - internet options - advanced - search from address bar, change to the option 'just display results in main window.' Use this a few times, shut down and restart and then change to option back to 'go to most ilkely site'.

This cured a similar hiccup for me.

I do not understand.

Basically, configure IE to "display results of toolbar search", then restart the PC and put option back to "go to most likely site". That is to say, force the option to change, in case there is a corruption in the registry.

i am not sure is that what you mean?

do u mean every time you start IE,the page itself will go to MSN?

if so i think the MSN s/w set the default Homepage to MSN site.
if you dont want to set default h/p then go to IE->tool->internet option
and said h/p so u can click on blank..so next time when you open IE no MSN search page.
