If i type in click here a window pops up saying 'cannot find "click here". please make sure the address is correct.'. It was working yesterday. It doesn't work with any address, but clicking on the down and going to the address works or using 'favourites'.

I just checked something. Typing click here works but not if i type just click here.

I presume there is something that usually converts it missing or faulty. Something like DNS?

Sorry.

Typing ht-tp://ww-w.something works but not if i type just ww-w.something. without -.

Scanning with spybot S&D shows a common hijacker, which keeps coming back. It looks like this is the problem.

Giving www a value of http:// in the registry has temporarily solved the problem, not sure about long term.
