    Umm.....

    If I type something in my IE address bar and hit Enter, I have it set up to automatically search the term with Google. However, if I type "far cry", and hit Enter, it launches the game. Umm....

    How can I stop this?

    I already told one friend about it.

    Well it's actually not Far Cry specific. I realized I can do this with any shortcut on my desktop. If I type the name of the shortcut in the address bar, it launches it.

    It's not called active desktop in XP is it? I don't think I have it on.

    This doesn't happen for anyone else?

    Yes, it happens for EVERY shortcut on my desktop.
