I have recently had a new motherboard installed. Prior to that, IE7 had 'Google (NZ)' installed as the default search engine. I had to reconfigure IE 7, and am having difficulties making sure that is the default, again. The proprietary search for search engines to load, does not come up with 'Google (NZ)'. I'm operating Windows XP.

Any ideas? Thanks.

It doesnt go straight to Google NZ. Just Google

However it looks like firefox gives you the option of the web or NZ

If you use the Google search.

Thanks, Speedy.

It does, as that was the way I had it set up prior to the new motherboard. just can't get it back to that state. Thanks, Again.

Do you mean you want to search from www.google.co.nz globally or search just NZ websites?

Hi, Agent_24.
The latter. As you know, IE7 has a separate search menu which you can add several search engines to. In my case, I had (amongst others) 'Google' and 'Google (NZ)' recorded on the menu, with the latter as a 'default'. Cheers.

Click the dropdown next to the search button, choose 'Find more providers'

Follow the instructions under the "create your own" to make a search engine that uses google and searches only NZ sites

Set it as the default if you so wish

Hi, Agent_24. That appears to have worked. Thanks.
