MS IE 8 with not add search
I have Google and Yahoo search tools in the search window on IE 8;
I was crazy enough to try and add Bing can't be done.

Webpage error details

In my admin account I got the Bing as default and then it will not add any
other new search tools either

RE: MS IE 8 with not add search
No not really a suggestion, just an observation. IE8 is full bugs and believe
it or not you can install Google search and Yahoo search but Not MS Bing
search so don't try, waste of time; just use Google, Yahoo; and Firefox.

MS Support unable to fix this bug; I am happy not to use MS Bing, I don't
need it and Firefox is much faster than IE8 all the time.

Is pathetic that Microsoft think it can release such a Buggy product and
people won’t notice; I am referring some of my clients to OpenSuse Unix 11.1
for the same reasons.

Re: MS IE 8 with not add search
Hi Alan,

I can tell from your error message that you have been using other browsers
as your userAgent string is corrupted by additions made by another browser.

This
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ;"

should not be there.

Nested UA Warning: Your User-Agent string is corrupted, with two instances
of the Mozilla/4.0 token. This typically is caused by a bad registry key.
See More Information about how to find the bad PostPlatform subkey and
remove it.

Go to
http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx

and follow the instructions there to correct your userAgent string.

Regards.

Re: MS IE 8 with not add search

Well I know a little about computers as I have been a programmer for 29 years.

I have fix the IE8 problem by re-installing it and making this post.

I firmly believe:

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0;
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322;
..NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR
3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Message: Element not found.

means that the web page to add search engines: Element not found means
the web page itself is broken, or broken links; this web page appears fixed
now;
maybe the re-install fix the problem.

In the end though, do not let MS on your compter remotely, without a proper
backup; and I found there support completely unable to solve or trouble shoot
this problem. I have found that it is best to argue with MS only for 20
minutes
if they can't fix the problem, then fix it yourself or ask someone else.

Alan

This shows that your User-Agent string is corrupt.
Fix your User-Agent.
