Re: address bar problem
Check this setting..
Internet Options> General> Languages> uncheck "Do not add 'www' to the
beginning of typed web addresses.
Hope this helps,

> How do I fix my address bar so I don't have to type www. before the
website name? Until a few days ago, "http://" was displayed in the bar and
I could just type in the address and hit enter. That is missing now and I
get a box that says "Windows cannot find whatever the name is--(ie Ebay).
Check the spelling and try again" If I type www. before the name or hit
CTRL Enter I reach the site ok. I was using IE 7 when this happened so
downloaded the new 8 Beta but still have the problem. Any suggestions?
