    I accidentally misspelled a website address in IE7. Although I have
    corrected the spelling numerous times IE7 keeps redirecting me back to the
    misspelled URL. I have tried deleting cookies and browsing history to no
    avail. How can I get IE7 to ignore the previously misspelled URL? I cannot
    get to the website I need! Thanks.

    "Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software

    Today's viruses and malicious software can be very hard to detect, and
    even harder to remove.

    1) If you have anti-virus and anti-spyware programs already installed on
    your computer, update the programs and scan your computer. With luck,
    the programs will detect and remove the problem.

    2) If the scan doesn't produce results, contact the program's technical
    support. Most of the major anti-virus/spyware programs will help you to
    remove an infection that their software did not detrect.

    3) Scan your system with /several/ of the better free online scanners,
    such as:

    Kaspersky Antivirus (http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner)
    NOD32 (http://www.eset.com/download/index.php) - free 30-day trial
    Trend Micro Housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com)
    Panda ActiveScan (http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan)
    McAfee Free Scan (http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp)
    Symantec Security Check (http://security.symantec.com)
    Avast! (http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-virus-cleaner.html)
    GrisSoft AVG (http://www.grisoft.com/doc/34/ww/crp/0)

    4) HijackThis (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/programs.php) is an
    advanced spyware scanner; you can post its logs to

    5) Finally, if none of the above remove the malicious software, it's
    time to show the computer to a professional.
