    ah

    in that dialogue, you get to pick the search engine.

    if google isn't an option, you have to download the reg file from the google site.


    I can't find it right now.

    also, j79 posted his own reg file that he says works better.

    pm him for the file

    I don't know what you mean by manual, #2 on that page is the actual reg file, the batch file just automates it.
