Windows 7: IE7Pro Search As Default

IE7Pro Search As Default

Hello all.

I have been wondering for a day or so why I couldn't search anything using the upper right hand search bar in IE8 in Windows 7. I was just about to start a thread to see if anyone else is having a similar problem; when on a hunch I switched back to MS Live Search as default and low and behold it now works; imagine that.

I guess MS doesn't want anyone to use another search provider as default or maybe it's an incompatibility between IE8/W7 and IE7Pro.

Maybe because it's a pre-beta. In the Beta it will work as Windows has been down the anti-competion road, to it's cost.
