Entered URL having ".com" added by IE7

    When I key a URL in IE7, and key Ctrl-Enter to open a new tab, ".com" is
    being automatically added to the URL I entered. If I key a URL and simply key
    Enter, to open the URL in the current window, the ".com" is not added.

    How do I prevent addition of ".com" when opening a new tab?

    Thanks. I've done some more research/investigation:-

    I find that Ctrl-enter from the address bar is actually specified as a
    keyboard shortcut that adds www to the beginning of the URL and .com to the

    Alt-enter from the address bar opens the URL in a new tab - you don't have
    to go to the new tab tab

    Ctrl-enter from a Favourite opens it in a new tab

    It's a bit confusing having to use ctrl-enter for a new tab from a Favourite
    or a link, and alt-enter from the address bar!
