    This is what I can remember.
    1. Make sure that the search option in IE is set to classic.
    2. Go to customize then autosearch settings. Then choose a search provider for address bar searches.


    If you need any clarification please feel free to ask.

    go to your search tree on the left, hit customize...then hit auto search settings if google isn't on the list, go to the google home page, and they will have a download that puts the google option on this scroll down list

    I've never been able to get Google's reg file to work, but the above does.
