Specs: Windows XP
I am running Windows XP SP2 with Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo Search has replaced Search Companion and

there is no preference button. Thee is a Customize button but it only brings up a pop-up page that says

Ops wrong page. Try again Later. Does anyone know how I can Get the MSN Search Companion back.

Thanks

Have you recently installed yahoo toolbar? If so, it wants to change the default search engine to yahoo. However, you should have a list of installed search engines.

In IE6 click Tools and choose > Internet options. On the General tab there is a button to change the default search engine.

There is no button to change the default search engine on the general tab.

Thanks anyway!

I am running IE7 so there are evidently some differences.

My question to you is why are you still running SP2 & IE6 in the 1st place?

You apparently installed something that changed your default search engine. There was probably a box that could have been unchecked during the installation...either you didn't see it or you ignored it. Try this:
