Today I noticed that Google is not providing me with search results. I mistyped a criteria and Bing came up. When I went back to Google, I noticed I can't get any search results. I noticed in IE Properties that Bing is listed as the default search provider. There is no option to remove it, even under the Administrator account. Can I just add Google as my search provider and make it my default? Thanks.

Yes, you can make Google your default search provider - not sure whether that will fix anything tho.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Could this be some kind of virus that affects Google search results? I did a scan with Defender and came up with nothing.

✔ Best Answer
The Vista version of Defender is for malware only. You also need decent anti-virus protection to go along with it.

We'd need to know which browser you're using to explain how to change the default search provider. Hopefully you're not still using IE9 (the last IE supported by Vista) because it's outdated & a security risk.
