    OMG I Hate BING

    Having spent the best part of the day surfing the net looking for a solution to set Google as the Default Search Provider on IE8 via group policy, I'm ready to throw in the towel.

    I have tried everything even the microsoft KB How to create custom .adm or .admx files to add search providers to the toolbar search box in Internet Explorer 7


    For the sake of my sanity has anyone got this working, if so how....I'm now starting to rock gently while dribbling as my invisible brother whispers in my ear!

    Cheers
