Why is it that when I'm on a geekzone page, if i type in a new web address it hardly ever goes to the new site? I always need to open a new tab to type in a new page ...

(sorry not very smart here)

No idea. I use three different browsers and have no problems.

Talking of which you don't give any information about the problem at all. What browser? What OS? On mobile or desktop?

It's likely to be a toolbar you have installed - are entering the address on the address bar, or toolbar search?

Seriously we can't even start working on anything without information.

Working fine for me on IE9 Windows 7 64.

Perhaps you should get an antispyware software and run a full scan? Also I suggest you run TrendMicro HouseCall even if you have another antivirus.

weird the scan turned out nothing ... and then bam the problem was gone after being there for a few months (??longer) ... and then today it's back ...

i have 2 laptops both running same OS and programs and both are the same ...

not wanting a solution as i can always open a new tab for a new site but thought i'd put it out there ...

Even so - does it make any difference if you start IE in the no addons mode?

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) or run "iexplore.exe -extoff"

I have had major problems with IE9, and on multiple computers. I found it was due to some of the adobe fonts I have installed, and a compatibility problem with Microsofts IE9 software, and they have no plans to fix it. So I downgraded to IE8 and that fixed it. IE is terrible software and I think the world would be better without it, and I think most people designing a website would agree, as it is a major frustration for many with all it's quirks.
