I have just installed Internet Explorer 8 on my computer. Whenever I open it, the following screens come up.

This one first:

I select Google and then check the box that says "set as default", but nothing seems to happen. Google does open when I open Internet Explorer, but these windows come up every time I open it. How can I get rid of them?

Working from the Manage Add-ons screen: Remove Live Search as the default by Right Click and choose Remove. Set Google as the default search provider. Does it work now?

For Windows Live Search, the "remove " option is grey and it doesn't work, it won't let me remove it. this is not so for the other search engines.
