Thanks Jeremy.
I have cleared my Firefox history & run a c clean. Tries again several times yesterday afternoon, but even inputting the full web address, I stil got the same thing. Then I tried accessing from Bling & bingo. No prob.
haven´t looked yet this morning. Fingers crossed. ;-)

If I were you, I would run a Virus check.
But it might be an idea to check your Shortcut properties in your favourites to see if the Web Address has been overwritten.

I think it is possibly caused by a spurious file that has made its way into your system.

My brother had a similar problem a year or so back and it took me several days to track it down and remove it for him.

Good luck

Jeremy

Don´t think Ancestry.co.uk should bring me to the Ann Summers site.
The top of the page quite clearly says Ancestry.co.uk.
I´m a bit past erotic underwear, although I´m sure the OH wouldn´t mind a look.
