Aarrrggh! How do I keep Windows Livesearch from hijacking my webbrowser?

For years i have used msn.com as my homepage as I really like the localized news and other content. About a couple months ago, however, they have added the windows live search bar at the top of the page. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but the search bar is the last thing to load on the page, and it always hijacks the focus of your text cursor into its search box when it finishes loading. that means, if you were halfway through typing in the url to a page, the other half will appear in the live search bar after its grabs focus of your cursor. Similarily, many times when I have been typing in a search phrase into google, the windows live search bar will grab focus.

Is there a way to disable this damn annoying feature? I am still using IE 6.
