Internet Explorer 6 - can't just type in

I have this Problem with Internet Explorer If I type in this site will not come up, But If I type in the web site will come up fine, I have reset the Internet browser settings and set all other setting back to default. I ran a Registry that make IE reinstall - Still having the same problem.

So for now I have been using Firefox and that works fine. But I would like to Internet Explorer Working

I also scanned the system for viruses and malware, uninstalled NAV, Disabled The firewall etc.. Still no Go

Has anyone ran into this problem, if Help
