    Internet Explorer 8 - GPO to change default search provider from Bing to Google

    Hi everyone,

    I have spent all day looking at this and am just confusing myself more and more so thought I would see if you guys could help!

    We have just deployed a number of Windows 7 PC's with Internet Explorer 8. I would like to change the default search provider from Bing to Google.

    We have 4 x Domain Controllers. 3 running server 2003 and 1 running 2008.

    I gather that this needs to be done by customising the inetres.admx and inetres.adml templates.

    However this is where I fall down!

    Where/how do I edit these templates?

    Do I configure these settings on a client pc then copy to the Domain controller?

    If this is correct, wont this overwrite any exisiting settings within those files.

    Help please! I have overloaded my brain today with this!
