    Has anyone else noticed ie6 or ie7 browsers trying to load multiple tabs or
    windows to google when you type a URL into the address bar, but all you get
    is a blank page instead of reaching the website you are looking for?

    Since the latest update, the ie browsers will not go to the URL, but instead
    show that they are trying to access google to search for the requested
    website. My tabs will flicker rapidly like the search is trying to open a
    window for each possible result instead of just going to the google search
    page. MY browser option is set to go directly to the URL requested and not
    to show any other search results

    If microsoft wants to make a deal with google, that's fine, but forcine my
    browser to go to google first, instead of just going to the website I want is
    BS!!! Especially when the program they built to reidrect to google is not
    working anyway.

    When I want to use a google search, I will type in the URL for the google
    website, I don't need anyone directing me there.

    You may have a horked install of IE7. I suggest that you...

    1. Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) per

    2. Uninstall all toolbars and any third-party Windows Themes (including
    Window Blinds);

    3. Reinstall IE7 per http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install,
    and using http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/default.mspx as the
    installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.
