    i'm having a weird problem that has stumped more than one message board already....

    usually, when i type "www.whatever.com" from the RUN box, it loads IE and the page.

    now, it tells me "cannot find www.whatever.com or one of its components..."


    if i type "http://www.whatever.com" it works
    if i type "iexplore www.whatever.com" it works

    someone suggested i play with the autocomplete settings, but that made no difference.

    any idea? this would really help me out.

    Do the pages giving you problems work fine from the address bar?

    :doh: I think I read that wrong the first time.

    What OS are you using?

    And disable any firewall you're running, i just tried this on mine and i have to grant windows explorer access to the internet, you must be blocking it somehow
