Here is a problem no one has been able to solve. About a year ago my taskbar search function started failing. Instead of taking me to a site (for instance, I should be able to simply type "Microsoft" and be taken right to the MS site), I was getting sent to the screen that says "This page cannot be found". I have changed the settings on search, but only using MSN gets the option of going directly to a site. The only way I could do any good was to change my search engine preference to something other than MSN. Then I can at least get search results but cannot go to a site automatically. I have tried many things: reloading IE, trying different versions of IE (I have not attempted 6.0), checking for registry items that might affect this, etc. I have posted on other forums but no one has come even close to finding the solution. I currently use IE 5.01 because it works the best and is not slow as molasses like 5.5. Maybe someone at this forum will be up to this challenge. I usually am my own tech support, since I assembled my own system. MS refuses to support IE as you probably know, unless you are willing to pay the big bucks. Even then I doubt they could solve this based on my past dealings with them.
