Internet Explorer redirects to Bing if URL doesn't begin with http://

We have had an intranet in place for many years. We used to be able to access it by typing just 'intranet' or 'help' into the IE address bar. Both of these words are set up as aliases in DNS. Something changed a while back with an IE update (possibly IE9?), and now users are being redirected to Bing with either 'intranet' or 'help' preloaded in the search field. The intranet still loads fine using Firefox, or by prefacing the keyword with http:// in IE. Any ideas?

In IE, go to Internet Options and under the General tab you will see a Settings in the Search area.  Click on Search Providers on the left and uncheck the box at the bottom that says "Search in the address bar."  See if that does the trick.
