    Right I am started to get rather annoyed, up until a couple of days ago when I accidentally installed some shitty Asrock app "SmartView" which I have subsequently uninstalled btw my IE9 search was set to google and worked fine, now however when I search from the address bar it doesnt search google it searches Google custom search, I have never heard of this before but it looks like shit and it's annoying me as I can't find a way to set it back to google :banghead:

    http://www.google.co.uk/cse/ <<<<<

    Now, I know what the issue is, that in IE the address to search is http://www.google.co.uk/cse/ but there is no way to edit it that I can see and I have been unable to find google on the shitty MS search providers site to change it :banghead:

    Help :cry:

    I believe I had something similar here. I had to log into my google account (gmail address) and found a spot in the options to turn off the beta.

    Ah nvm I have fixed it, for some shitty reason when you click to find more providers in IE it takes you to http://www.iegallery.com and there is only an accelerator for google on that site, not a search provider, I google IE9 search providers and went direct to the MS site and I was able to choose google.

    Seriously why the hell do MS fu*k about with this shit man, what was so hard about changing the fricking search provider yourself by just putting in the address??? :banghead:
