    Hi. I have Vista home premium on a newly purchased HP desktop. I am unable to change the defaults on the search bar (top righthand corner) from "Live search" to "Google". I have tried both the drop-down beside the search box Tools -> Internet options-> Change search defaults. It only allows me to set Google as the default for this session. I have even completely removed live search as a search engin, but everytime I restart my computer, live search shows up as the default, and google is listed below that.

    How can I get Explorer to remember to safe Google as my default after setting it as the default?

    Thank you.
