Everytime I enter a wrong web page addy or one that is not foud, I am
redirected to http://nav.startnow.com/?q=www.(wrong-addy-here).com&e=as
and the page is something of a search result for the words entered. How to I
set the system to navigate to something like google.com or yahoo.com if I
enter a wrong addy?

Try at least one more of the applications listed.
Do not rely on only one.
Also be sure to try CWShredder as Will suggested.

Look in Add/Remove Programs for an entry that may apply.
If you find it, uninstall it.

Hi

Have you tried CWShredder - that seems to get rid of a lot of Browser
problems.
