Windows 7: IE9 and adress bar questions

similar problem here. The following post is a modified version of the one found on January 5 at:
win 7 taskbar address toolbar error: adds backslash to url - Microsoft Community

I have a fresh install of Win 7 Ultimate x64, with IE 11 and all Windows Updates installed. I would like to search from the taskbar-mounted-address-bar. For search terms with a space in them, it works perfectly, but if I type in a single word, it appends http:// and /, and tries to navigate to the url instead of searching for the text.

The IE option "Go to an intranet site for a single word entry in the Address bar" is disabled.

Any suggestions? Thank you.

Welcome to Seven Forums irajacobs. You should start a new thread, and link to any older threads as an example, as this is marked solved, and many won't look.

Where did the search box go?

Internet Explorer 11 uses the One Box feature, which lets users type search terms directly into the Address bar. Any text entered into the Address bar that doesn't appear to be a URL is automatically sent to the currently selected search provider.

Note   Note
Depending on how you've set up your intranet search, the text entry might resolve to an intranet site. For more information about this, see Intranet problems with Internet Explorer 11
