AutoComplete for Web addresses - Works for "http:\\www.google.com" but not for "google.com" RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS: Windows XP SP3, Browser: IE8, Domain Computer


    I have some problems with AutoComplete in IE8. It works fine in IE6.


    When i type "http:\\www.google.com" in the addressbar it stays and next time I can find it in addressbar but if I type "google.com" or "microsoft.com" it das't work. I cant find google.com in the addressbar!


    GPO that is causing the problem is a folder redirection GPO that points user's Favorites to home folder (%HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%Favoriter).

       CATEGORY "Favoriter"
       POLICY "Favoriter"
                 KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders"
                  PART "Favoriter" EDITTEXT
                      KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders"
                      VALUENAME "Favorites"
                      #if VERSION >= 2
                  END PART
       END POLICY ; Favoriter
    END CATEGORY ; "Favoriter"



    It works fine if I disable this GPO setting or point it to a folder that das't exist. Have also tried to turn off InPrivate Filtering and InPrivate Browsing, which did not do any good.

    I can't turn off folder redirection so is there maybe some fix for this issue?
