searching from IE6 address bar

  gippingman 14:35 26 Aug 2006

I have Talk Talk Broadband. I used to be able to search from IE6 address bar and it would launch msn search (from memory) - I used this function a great deal. Now when I search I get the following click here - talk talk navigation web page -this is infuriating and I have to search from a search page stored under favourites etc - how i can get the default adrress bar serch to work again ?

"Autosearch (also known as "Search from the Address Bar")

Autosearch settings can be adjusted in two ways; via the Customize Button in the Search Pane, or via Internet Explorer's Advanced settings pane. That being said, the Customize button in the Search Pane is the best route to choose when customizing your search engine settings because it is the only place where you are able to change your choice of search engine provider.

We have four Autosearch options to choose from:

• Display results, and go to the most likely site;

• Do not search from the Address Bar;

• Just display the results in the main window;

• Just go to the most likely site.

The safest option, in this brave new world of pop-up windows and browser hijackings, is option number three. Option number three allows you to review search results before going to any of the recommended Web sites."
