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

    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?
