PC Keeps searching for .edu .org .net

Hi guys,

I was wondering if you could help, I have a PC that keeps searching for .edu .org .net etc when you enter a web address in, say www.yahoo.com it ends up looking like www.www.yahoo.com.org or sometimes .net
Have you any idea how to sort this out.

Cheers,

I have a couple questions.

1. What browser are you using.

2. Is there any "browsing enhancment" software installed on the PC. This inclues checking for spyware http://www.adaware.com

My guess is that there is some piece of junk spyware app messing things up, that would be the first thing I'd check.

After that if you're using Internet Explorer check in the Options -> Advanced and try turning off the "Show Friendly URLs" option.

Of course, you want to turn it off, not add to it.
