MSN is not IE. If IE has an issue, look up and use IEFIX which will help restore most settings of IE.
Have you tried Firefox?
Since I loaded spybot sd 1.3, I have been unable to go to an address without adding the .xxx to the end. For example, I use to be able to type cnet and it would give me my choices on MSN, now i have to type cnet.com and it takes me right to the screen. Without the .com, it tells me the page cannot be displayed and at the bottom says cannot find server or dns error internet explorer. What did I do wrong? do I need to reload MSN?
