I recently installed Windows XP in a home environment (single computer
with cable Internet access). In addition to the Administrator, I
created another ID for myself which has administrative privileges.
When I use Internet Explorer 6 and enter an incomplete url in the
address toolbar, for example, www.microsof.com, IE momentarily
processes, fills in the address field with the complete url, for
example, http://www.microsoft.com/ and then displays the sites web
page.
Then I created two other users on the computer with non-admin
privileges. When either of these users are logged on, use Internet
Explorer, and enter an incomplete url in the address toolbar, as
above, IE momentarily processes, then stops. The incomplete url is not
replaced with the complete address, nor does a web page appear. There
are no error messages. Nothing. If you key in the complete web address
with the http:// suffix, everything works fine. If you leave out the
http://, the www., or the .com. Nothing.
I added admin privileges to the userids but that did not fix the
problem.
Anyone have any suggestions what might be the problem.

#1 Is the "autocomplete" function of IE enabled for the new users?

#2 If #1 is yes, have you actually been to the address that you want to autocomplete? If not, then there's no reference to the site address in the history of *that* particular user, therefore, no autocomplete.

Different users accounts have their own unique set of history, temp, My Documents, My Pictures, etc. files. If you want these to be global to this point so when any user logs in each has the same history, I believe you can log in as administrator and simply drag the administrators documents into the other users accounts.

C:\Documents and Settings

HTH

BTW, the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Enter" to add site prefix and suffix is accurate and used quite often here. :p

Still Not working

I did that auto complete and still cant get the others acounts to surf the web. The only way for them to surf requires to type http:// then the adress. Could it be in the registry or something.
