    Question Internet Explorer isnt adding http://www.

    Like the subject says after I installed IE 7 Beta 2 the http:// doesnt auto fill in when I hit enter or click on GO. So if I type www.google.com and hit enter IE doesnt do a thing untill I hit Ctrl + Enter. Before it would just automatically fill that in.

    So I uninstalled IE 7 after hearing it from my Wife and now I have the same issue with IE 6 SP2. any Ideas?

    Windows XP Home
    Service Pack 2
    McAfee Antivirus 2006
    Internet Explorer 6
    Need to know anything else here?

    Watch this be a simple fix, (will slam head into monitor if it is)

    I think the feature is user configurable, but can't
    remember at the moment
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Who's a naughty boy then?

    Seriously, you should never load the beta of an existing application into the same OS instance. Particularly on a production machine.

    This is a real issue with MS software as it is very closely integrated so you are likely to overwrite files on installation and delete shared files on uninstallation

    Have a look in your IE <tools>. There are options for "autocomplete" in the <advanced > and <content> tabs.

    I have use inline autocomplete checked in tools/internet options/advanced. But this didnt work. It was working for some time in IE 7 Beta 2, but it stopped working the other day and this upset my wife. So I uninstalled it and went back to IE6. Now IE6 doesnt add the http:// either. This must be a bug in IE 7.
