Heres a reg file that turns the default search engine in IE and My Computer into Google. I cant stand MSN Search, and Im sure alot of you cant either. Its perfectly safe, you can check the reg file yourself and it works flawlessly!

I very rarely use the search function in IE, normally I just navigate to Google in a new window.

That is pretty slick though, Iím sure someone will find it very usefull. :thumb:

How do you uninstall it if you don't like it?

Umm, I dont know, you can try removing it from the registry. Why dont you like it though? If you dont mind me asking that is.

I don't know if I like it or not. I would just prefer to know how to take it off in case I don't care for it. No biggie. I am assuming I can just delete the registry entries.

Well, some people just dont like tool bars, afraid of spyware and such. This registry impliments Google within Windows.

Use Firefox! It comes with integrated Google search. ;)

On a serious note, it's good to see people look use better alternatives than MSN.

Am I missing something?
Start IE. Search Google. Go to google. Open Tools/Internet options/general set home page to current page. No more msn.
