Problem in google search parameter in the Address toolbar in taskbar

i have enabled the address toolbar on the taskbar by rightclick taskbar>toolbar>address.
this lets me to open local disks or open websites quite easily.
initially if i wanted to search a word on the internet, i would type it and press enter. Bing would then search for it on the web.
however Bing SUX so i replaced with google search provider as the default. But now the address toolbar doesnt search at all. whatever word i give, it detects it as if its a website.
