How to avoid automatic seaching from OpenDNS Guide when using IE6?

Hi All:
I used to hit the CTRL + ENTER after writing any .com name in the address bar in IE 6. It used to go straight to thata site.  But lately when I do the same I get: "http://guide.opendns.com/?url=experts-exchange&client=ie6". What do I need to change to recover my previous searching mode?
