    Instead of the usual generic looking 404 "This Page Cannot be found" message on invalid sites, I'm getting a We can't find "whateversite.com" from MSN and then it offers me a msn search and a bunch of crap.

    Does anyone know how you switch back to the default?

    I was searching and thought I found the answer in the link below because it said I could turn off friendly error messages... but I edited the registry, rebooted the computer and it didn't change anything. http://www.mydesktophelp.com/tips/ie09.htm

    Finally! I found where you set it:

    Internet Options --> Advanced --> Search from the Address Bar --> When Searching --> Do Not Search from the Address Bar
