    Default

    some internal switch has flipped and my search engine is some piece of crap that I dont want. I have tried to edit my preferences in the control panel but the web site I want to use as my default search engine is not on the list of their choices. I want to use google. how can I make this happen?

    Go into IE and enter the google address in the address bar. Then select tools/internet options/use current/apply/ok.

    That should do the trick, if it doesnt chances are you have visited some dodgy sight at some point that changes your home page to theirs automaticaly every time you re-start. I dont have have the fix for that at hand but i'm sure one of the other contributors will be able to tell you :smile:

    I am not trying to change my home page, but the search engine that it defaults to when I type anything into the address bar.
