I had to reformat & reinstall XP at home. Now, when I browse the web, I notice that if I type "www.google.com" I get a "page cannot be displayed" error but if I type "google.com" it goes right to the site with no problem.

Google is just an example, it seems to be random (not all pages do this) and I don't have a problem once the page is cached.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Not all serrvers have a WWW in their address so, if you put it in the browser can't go to that address. Just like dialing a correct/incorrect phone number that's been disconnected.
