Thank you for your answer and links, but I knew about those options and those options are not what I was talking about. But I think you know that.

Is it really possible that nobody knows the answer to this.
This is in Win 7's group policy.
There should be a reason for that.

Does anyone knows who I should ask about this?

That is strange that this won't work for you.

Make sure the "Add Search link" under User Configuration – Administrative Templates – Start Menu and Taskbar is also turned on.

I have this setup on my machine to query wikepedia and technet.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
"Add Search Internet link to Start Menu" is enabled, and I can search the internet via this option.
But, although the option set up in gpedit.msc, I cannot "Pin Internet search sites to the “Search again” links and to the Start Menu" and cannot search in other internet seach sites like wiki, PubMed or technet directly. Why ???
