Windows 7: How to get help with Windows Server 2011

How to get help with Windows Server 2011

Is there somewhere similar to this where I can get help with Windows Server 2011?

All I'm trying to do is add Google as a search provider in IE8, and I'm hitting rafts of problems, and not getting even remotely close to success.

I go: Tools -> Internet Options -> Change search defaults Settings -> Find more search providers

I get a new IE8 window with a "Content is being blocked" for (and then several others). I don't have a clue what to do about this, so I just close the window.

Eventually, I get a webpage that mentions Google with an "Add to Internet Explorer". I click that button, but all I get is "! Error on page"

Why can`t you just go to when you want to do your search ?

Set it as the home page. is the home page on everyone of my computers.

You gotta remember, server editions behave a little different then regular consumer oriented versions of windows.

The simple solution was to wait until Windows Server 2011 decided to run Windows Update. Amongst the 97 critical fixes was the upgrade to IE9. I don't get the search field in IE9 (I was pondering why my Windows7 had no search field) so I'm happy now.
