hi

If I browse to http://localhost/MyApplication in IE it redirects to uk.search-results.com. The application is in IIS.

Firefox browses to the application though.

I don't know what uk.search-results.com is and I don't want IE browsing to it

Thanks in advance

seems like you have got some addons insalled in IE which are making this.
click on tools-> manage addons
disable the addons which you think can be problematic..
click on tools-->internet options-->General Tab

Check Delete Browsing history is enabled, cookies are deleted etc.,

on the same General Tab, there is a search option,
click on the settings button and disable any search engines.
