Windows 7: Sysprep + IE Search Providers Error

Sysprep + IE Search Providers Error

First off, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong thread, it's the closest description I could find, if it needs moving, please move it moderators.

I have searched SevenForums and the web trying to fix this, and I'm still at a loss.

I am deploying Windows 7 Pro x64 to multiple computers using sysprep. Sysprep runs fine and completes great, the issue is when opening IE for the 1st time after the system is deployed. Users get a warning the fist time and then it opens the manage search providers dialog box. NOTE: I'm trying to search from the ADDRESS BAR, I have removed windows Live search!!! Just so no ones confused on how I want to have this working.

Warning (similar to this):
" Search Provider Default says "a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for IE, IE has reset this setting to your original search provider (Google).. and IE will now open search settings to change a setting"?

I've toyed with changing the registry directly, but I feel there has to be a way to do this through Sysprep.

Here is the section from my sysprep xml file..

There are two occurrences. I've only played with Sysprep and that was quite a while ago.- so I'm guessing here.
