Find more search providers

When I click on find more providers in the search bar, instead of taking me
to the Microsoft Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer 7 page it takes me
to a Google search on "search terms". Thanks for any help that you can give.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium which is oem.

Re: Find more search providers

Thank you for your response. I have a Gateway computer, but I checked to see
if the suggestion would solve my problem anyway and it didn't. When I first
got the computer 10 months ago it went to the right page. I didn't think to
mention before, that Live Search is my default. Thanks again for your
response. I would appreciate any other feedback that I get!

Re: Find more search providers

Hi,
As a workaround, see if this page lets you select additional search
providers

Re: Find more search providers

I uninstalled Google programs that I saw in Program and Features sometime ago
when I had trouble with IE 7 searches going to Google when they weren't
chosen, and I don't find any Google software listed there now. I have done a
search in the registry and see Google desktop search there several times and
a lot of other Google listings. Looking in the Program Files folder I do see
GPLGS. I can tell by looking in it that it is Google. Is this something that
it is safe to delete. Thanks for your response.

Re: Find more search providers

See Don's reply.

At some time in the past, you may have downloaded/installed a file to make
Google your default search from http://www.google.com/options/defaults.html.

C:\Program Files\GPLGS has nothing to do with Google. It's the program
folder for an application called Ghost Script (apparently a PDF converter).

Re: Find more search providers

I have now gone back to the Dell link that Don gave me. I checked the add-ons
and didn't find the find the "CBrowserHelperObject" listed in any of the four
"show categories". However, I did a search in Windows Explorer and found
bae.dll in C:\Windows\system 32. In looking at the properties, I see that it
is a Gateway Browser Address Error Redirector. Since I can't find it listed
in the manage add-ons, would deleting that file be a solution? Thanks again
for your assistance.

Re: Find more search providers

Now that we know it's a Dell, download/run the Dell Decrapifier first, Peg:
