Adress Bar in Explorer constantly reverts back to old adress

    I have a incredibly annoyong erro on two XP machiones Ive never seen before.

    When I type something into the adress bar of an explorer window to go to a
    new location, half way through while I am typing the address bar reverts to
    show the address of the current showing directory.

    For example, lets say I have an explorer window open in the directory
    c:\program files:

    I click the address bar (which now empties and is ready for input) and I
    want to type in (for example) \\f00-address\c$.

    What happens then is that after I type "\\f00-a" (approximately) the address
    bar will revert back to show "c:\program files" with selected text. Since I
    am still writing and this text is selected I will overwrite this with the
    rest of the address.

    When I am done typing and hit enter this is what is in the address bar
    "ddress\c$".

    This retarded error occurs on two separate computers with completely
    different sets of software.

    Its driving me nuts because its impossible to search google for a solution
    on a address bar that is not working, and my computers are more or less
    useless with this function gone.

    I would appreciate some help on this, thanks!

    How is *Internet* Explorer involved here?
