Lost my http://

I.E Explorer 6 would not find a web site when I entered click here etc into the address bar. I then found that click here would work. This has only happened recently & the computer seems to be working properly in all other respects. Can anyone tell me how to rectify the problem please.

Try this click here

try entering "whatever" hold down control hit return

I followed the instructions in 'click here' and found that the check box was already ticked. I typed manchesterairport, did the control+enter thing and found a shopping site!!!

I'm confused now! Are you trying to search from the address bar?

I'm used to typing a web address into the address bar in internet explorer and finding the site. I type click here etc. My computer now only goes to the site if the address is part of my recent history otherwise I have to type click here etc before the site comes up.

Can you provide a real example please.

Earlier tonight I typed click here When I hit enter there was no response. The same thing happened a couple of days ago when I typed click here In both cases if I type the same address but preceded with http:// then when I hit enter the web page is displayed. It seems that if I did a search on Google and copied down web addresses then I would fail to display the page or even if I paste the www address into IE. Clicking the link in Google will succeed. Going back to the airport example, now that I have contacted the site by typing the http:// etc I can make the contact by simply typing click here......
It is a long answer, thanks for your interest in the problem.

Just out of interest, if you click on your click heres - do they work?

Yes - in both cases.

Time for bed, will check back after work on Fri.
