    Check your settings in Internet Options, on the Advanced tab, under
    'Search from address bar'. You may have 'Do not search from address bar'
    selected; requiring exact matches for web pages.

    Well, I don't use that OS; so if it's not in Control panel; Internet
    Options; Advanced tab, then I dunno.

    ...and
    > mike i have avast anti virus and it says no problems


    It *could* be something other than a virus; or something that Avast
    doesn't detect, or something that disables resident antivirus
    protection.....
    I suggest you follow °Mike°'s advice.
