In Internet Exporer 6....

Has anyone seen the "http:///?%20" characters at the beginning of the address field appear when a web site could not be found?

Why does this happen and how can I get rid of it?

For instance, I click on the Address field at the top of my browser, then type an invalid address like "support.hotmail.com" and the address bar changes to "http:///?%20support.hotmail.com"

It doesn't seem to do it for other sites but I see the "20" a lot...
