You can add other search engines, for example

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; add search MS Knowledgebase by KB number (just type the number in the search box)
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\MSKBnumber]
"DisplayName"="MS KB number"
"URL"="http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid={SearchTerms}"

;add search MS knowledgebase by string (type the string in the search box)
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\MSKBString]
"DisplayName"="MS KB String"
"URL"="http://support.microsoft.com/search/default.aspx?query={SearchTerms}"

;search using Dogpile
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\Dogpile]
"DisplayName"="Dogpile"
"URL"="http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl/search/web/{SearchTerms}"

Why not to try Mozilla Fire Fox!?

What can not be done using firefox!?

Nothing

OR you just used to IE

many things can't be... i use mainly FF, but it starts in tenth of seconds when IE appears in less than 2.

FF uses a lot more memory (now : 85 megs with one single tab and one single window !!! there are whole OSes of the tenth of this size that include browsers !!!)

FF doesn't support embedding of HTML applications (HTA) nor OLE (ex: word inside IE)

some websites works bettter in IE

FF bookmarks are not shown in start menu

FF can't create MHT (which are very handy... there's an extension that allow similar thing, but IIRC that's still not MHT readable by 99% of windowes)

and lots more...

Do you really need to add all of those settings to make Google the default search engine?

No Sgt_Strider

only the ones intended for the search engine. look em over

thanks Delprat

Exactly, I mainly use Firefox and only a crazy would say only use that. You need versatility and the things that only IE can give then duhhhh, you need IE. Like my retirement money, that website don't work with FF. and the mht's gotta love that for sure, what else does it
