    What tool bar? Is it the Google Toolbar, or something that got
    installed on your computer, and you dont know how it ended up there?

    This is the built in buttons that everyone has if they use IE.

    Under File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help

    You have

    Stop, Page Refresh, Home, Search, Favorites, Media, etc etc etc.

    This is not new, this is not google

    Get the picture???

    When I click on SEARCH somehow the search engine changed?

    How do I get a back to a specific search engine???

    OK, I cleaned out some junk that got loaded,

    so how do I change the search companion?

    Now when I press the search button it says "unable to display page"

    Press CTRL+E to open the search bar and
    press the 'Customize' button. Sometimes,
    you don't have the options that you want,
    for example I like Google, and use the following:
    http://www.google.com/options/defaults.html
