[MY COMPUTER TUTORIALS]
Oh great, a friend of mine used my windows 7 OS computer, and yup! Those sites that I do not like to go to are magically appearing like crazy on IE address bar not the search bar. Boy! They WERE absolutely GLUED to the Address bar. I completely erased them using the AUTO COMPLETE SOLUTION; I also rebuilt my index.
1ststep: Do an Auto Compete:
On the Menu bar, [IE browser] go to Tools>Internet Options>Content tab>Auto Complete menu >Settings button>Unchecked all those three main boxes and their sub-boxes>proceed to delete auto complete history button>and put a check mark on all boxes except preserve favorites websites data>press on delete button at the bottom of the dialogue box - [P.S. Unchecked boxes and checked boxes]>delete history dialogue box will automatically close and bring you back to auto complete pop up window; then press Okay to that auto complete dialogue box; then restart your browser, and or restart your computer if possible for the new settings to apply.
