Hi,

For some reason I can't search from my address bar. When I enter a query it will bring my ISP page saying it can't perform the search or something to that effect. Could anyone help me with this issue please?

Your ISP is hijacking your address bar search provider. Juno does the same. You can put it back via a few registry hacks (I wish I could find the link to the tutorial...), but if you continue to use your ISP (I can only assume you will), it will just put it back.

If you use a different ISP and reset the address bar search provider, then it will stay that way (assuming that ISP doesn't do the same). AT&T doesn't do this (that's my ISP).

Thank you keyboardNinja at least I now know what I'm dealing with it's no a question of overcoming it.
Unfortunately I cannot switch ISP's because I'm under a years contract with my current ISP.
It's becoming a real pain & I want to resolve this as soon as possibly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks once a keyboardNinja for your input.

Who's your ISP?
That issue should be fixable.
Comcast, for instance, has opt out option.

Hi Broni

I actually rang "Talk Talk" & one of their representatives kindly helped me through the problem.
If anyone has a similar issue & wants me to explain the resolution in detail, let me know.
