    Internet Explorer 7

    Two days ago I logged off my pc and was prompted to 'Install Update'. I did.

    The next day I logged in and opened IE7 when I discovered a problem. I can
    input an address into the address bar, but it will not link directly to the
    address. If I hit enter (while the cursor is in the box) or I click the green
    refresh button, it will not go to the address.

    The only way I can go directly to a web site (besides favorites) is to
    google the site/link and go from there.

    I'm having the same problem. I found that you can enter "http://" before the
    URL and then the green arrow or the enter key will work. This is a pain
    though. I also have to say that I have not yet installed IE7 and am still
    using 6.0 and having this problem.

    I find that if it needs www. added also that just adding "http://" will not
    work. In past the www was auto added ...but not now.
