Hi Pam,

Of course, be sure to "save" your registry settings 1st.   :-)

  Oh, FINE, I make this great suggestion and you throw it back at me 

   

    Ok, first START, RUN, type in - regedit - When the registry editor comes up 
click on EDIT, go to find and enter - internet explorer - and of course ENTER.

  You should be looking at something that looks very much like an explorer 
screen, and your first "find" should be highlighted.  Right click to either 
DELETE or MODIFY an entry in the right panel, also look in the left panel to 
see which folder is open.  You can look at the contents of other folders 
without messing with your original search; just hit the F3 key to find the next 
occurrence of IE.

   

  Chuck

  Hi Pam Chuck again;

     You could do a registry search (Regedit or Regedt32, depending on win9x or 
XP/2k) for "internet explorer" and check out the URL entries

  Hi Chuck,

  Wish it were that simple, but it isn't.  For example, I click on google, from 
my Favorites, and it takes me to google.  Then one day I click on the same link 
and it might take me to yahoo, or amazon, or evolt, or any other web site I may 
have visited in the last 3-6 months. 

  It doesn't matter if I type in the address, or if I click on a link in a 
page, or if I link to it from my Favorites.  

  That's what makes it so wierd!  I can see the address I told it to go to in 
the address bar, but at the bottom left, in the status bar, I can watch that it 
is trying to take me elsewhere.  If I simply hit Refresh repeatedly it will 
eventually take me to the correct URL. 

   

  Pam

  Hi Pam, Chuck here;

    It certainly has been quiet on the Duct Tape front, hope that means that 
all machines are optimally running.

     My suggestion for your situation would be, that the typed URL over 
enthusiastically "auto completes" with a recent URL, as you type in the first 
part of the URL you presently want.  Check under "Tools", "Internet Options," 
look at "content" and check "Auto Complete".  I use IE6, I hope the process is 
similar for your EI.  

    Let me know!

  Hi all,

  It's been pretty quiet here these days.  Hope everyone is doing well.

  I have a question/problem that's been ongoing for quite some time but I've 
just been ignoring it.... sort of.

  I have IE5.5.  Occassionally, when I type in a URL, IE takes me to a totally 
and completely different web site, almost always one that I've visited some 
time in the past but not necessarily one that I've visited recently.  I've 
noticed that it happens more frequently (and almost constantly) if I haven't 
emptied my cache in a while.  This is definitely not a redirect that is 
happening, atleast not one that is ordered by the site I'm trying to access.  

  Anyone have any ideas?
