delay in searching

This isn't a serious problem, but a little bit annoying.

I am using windows xp pro +sp2.
Google is set up as my default search engine.

When searching via google(for lotus, example) , it shows the results almost immediately, but if I do a search using the address bar, it tries to load http://lotus/, then msn, before going to google. It doesnt load the first 2, but I can see it in the status bar.

This all occured after I had been trying out googlebar. I removed it and then had problems getting address bar to search. It searches now, but just with this annoying delay.

Any suggestions how to fix this little annoyance?

Many thanks for any help you can give me

Ashamed because it makes me feel like part of an irrational, brainwashed cult...

Nothing against the app itself. It's a good, solid browser, and I've used it every day since the Phoenix days (yes, one of the early-adopters), but it bugs me when people try to push it off as being the solution to every IE-related problem.

Nothing wrong with suggesting it IMO, which is what I did. I'm against suggesting something completely different without providing some help or information in response to the immediate problem. In this case I didn't have time to lookup how to change the default in IE, but I still provided the information that it was an IE setting... and then I suggested Firefox. :)

Yes like everytime there is a "news" no matter what the subject ie: Google pay service it is made into an ANTI microsoft bashing thread right away and this all the time and I have mentioned it before this site was never like that back in the day.
