My wife's system is having an interesting problem. When she uses the address bar search, you type in ikea to go to www.ikea.com for example, it always sends her to one specific website. No matter what she plugs in. Our systems are virtually identical, both running Windows XP: Home Edition SP1. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

It could be a browser hijack of some sort, or something in the HOSTS file.

Are your Search settings set the same on both computers? i.e. they are both set to use the same search engine?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
