Why, all of a sudden can't I use a search engine?

For some reason, when I try to enter a web page with a search engine on it, I get a "cannot find server". This also applies when I try a search on my default web page, Yahoo. Using the net otherwise, is fine.

in IE, goto tools/internet options/programs tab, at the bottom is a button saying reset web settings, click this button, in the window that opens, remove the tick from also reset my home page (it reverts back to Microsoft page if you let it) then click ok.

Goto the advanced tab and click restore defaults, that should sort it out (i hope)

good luck
