Hello, When I used to type into the URL I would automatically get Google Search Results (if it was not a valid URL).

Now I get AltaVista Google Search Results.

I want to change this preference back, so that it goes to standard google search results again.

Anyone any idea how to do this ?

It happened when i installed AltaVista Toolbar, I have removed AltaVista toolbar, and the problem is still there. Also reinstalled FF, and still there. HELLLLLP !
