Where can I update my computer to go to a certain page if I go to a bad website?  Right now it's set to go to google search.

Example:  If I go to http://blah251252153.com, my browser goes to:

http://www.google.com/search?q=blah234.com&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&ie=utf8&oe=utf8

nrking83,

You can change which search engine is used, like changing from Google to MSN.  But you cannot direct which website where the bad URL goes to.

Click the "Search" button on the tool bar.
Click the "Customize" button in the left pane.
Click the "Autosearch settings" button in the popup window (bottom
left).
Choose a search provider for address bar searches.  ("Google Sites" is
one of the available options.)
