Default Explorer

I'm having a problem with internet explorer. When I type in a web address and hit enter, it just turns the line blue and won't go to the website, the arrow does the same thing. I tried uninstalling IE7 and going back to 6 same problem tho.

Have you tried hitting Ctrl + Enter. Hitting jsut enter will not fill in the www. and the .com at each end. It will jsut try to take you to google instead of www.google.com. IE doesnt allow for DNS naming like that for it web addresses like Firefox and Opera does.
