Internet Explorer not loading pages when using the address bar.

i Have a bizzare problem with IE after recently performing a repair install on the system. When i open IE it loads the homepage and if i click any links from that page it will load up those pages. I can load sites from my favourits list but if i type an address such as www.bbc.co.uk etc in the address bar and click go or press enter nothing happens. I have temporarily installed Mozilla which works fine but i need to sort this out as i need to use IE.

I have checked other threads on this site and checked Internet Explorers options to make sure they are set ok. I have performed an SFC /Scannow and also tried repairing IE by going to C:\Windows\Inf and right clicking IE.inf and choosing install to reinstall IE from the Windows disk.

I don't know what to try again save from another repair install

Recent windows update

Copy the following to the clipboard (it's all one line even if wrapped in your browser - paste into notepad and remove line breaks if necessary, and copy again)
click START, type RUN <enter>

=copy below here=
REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached" /v "{A4DF5659-0801-4A60-9607-1C48695EFDA9} {000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401" /t REG_DWORD /d 1
