How can I stop MSN un-nescessarily diverting my web access. I have a V21 internet connection, but when I type in www[dot]pcadvisor[dot]co[dot]uk, ([dot]=.) for example. MSN tells me it doesn't exist, but I could try: www[dot]pcadvisor[dot]co[dot]uk (or the web address of another website.) how do I stop this MSN pest??

this may sound silly but have you changed your home page to msn go tools internet options delete the address in there and put what you want in does this help or is it something else

MSM tries to be helpful and suggests the site you may want if the one you typed in does not exist.

It can be told not to, but I cannot find the tweak at the moment; if I do, I will post it.

My set homepage is uk.altavista.com. It just gets annoying that it suggests exactly the same address that I originally typed.
