Make Google Your Default Search Engine

Microsoft seem to have made it very difficult to change the default search engine to Google in Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

This is the simplest way that I have found:

Open Internet Explorer,

Go to this url:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx

Under Web Search, left click the word Google.

A box headed Add Search Provider will open.

Left click to select Make this my default search provider.

Left Click the Add button.

Job done!
