Address Bar IE7
I have IE 7. My default search is google, but when it searches in the address
bar it goes to the ask search. Thanks Lonestar

Re: Address Bar IE7
Hi,
Windows XP?

Go to IE> Tools> Manage add-ons. If you see an add-on which might be causing
this, disable it. The add-on may not be named "Ask." Try disabling various
add-ons.

Next step... Go to http://toolbar.google.com Download the Google toolbar
(Version 5) After installing the toolbar go to Options (down arrow next to
the Google button)> Search tab> (select) Make Google my default search in
Internet Explorer.

Possible complication:
A number of security programs such as
Spybot (Advanced Mode) Tools> IE Tweaks
Spybot- Teatimer
Ad-aware Pro
Norton AV 2006 (Web Browsing > Spyware protection)
McAfee AV or Antispyware
Spyware Blaster
Spysweeper
Zone Alarm- free and pro.

Are capable of locking the IE homepage and other IE settings. If you can't
change the default search engine, see if a security program is blocking the
change.

Hope this helps,
Don

Re: Address Bar IE7
Check that this registry value is correct:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Search Page"="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch"
