    The information below, is from the Help section of Internet Explorer. Open
    Internet Explorer,
    and press F1 for Help. Then in the index, type the topic. If you search for
    this topic in Google, I am sure you will find many more details.


    Search Criteria, "default search provider".


    To customize your Internet searches:
    As you search for items on the Internet, you may want to customize the way
    you search. You can choose which search categories are available and which
    search providers to use for your searches.
    To customize your searches, click the Search button on the toolbar, and then
    click the Customize button in the Search bar. You can customize a variety of
    search options, or choose a default search provider.

    To do thisTry this:
    Choose which categories are available.Select the check box for each category
    you want displayed.
    Choose providers within a category.Within each category, select the check
    box for each provider you want available.
    Choose the main provider within a category.Within each category, click the
    main search provider you want to use, and then click the up arrow below the
    list to move the provider to the top of the list.
    Arrange the order in which search providers are used.Within each category,
    click a provider in the list, and then click the up or down arrows under the
    list to rearrange the order in the list. The provider at the top of the list
    is the first one used within the category.

    Arrange the order of categories in the Search bar.Select the category in the
    category list, and then click the up or down arrow under the category list
    to change its position.
    Save previous searches.Select the Previous searches check box.
    Use one search provider at a time.At the bottom of the Customize Search
    Settings window, click Choose a Default Search Provider.

    If you are running Windows XP, and do not see the Customize button in the
    Search bar, you can use Search Companion to search for information. For more
    information on Search Companion, see Help and Support.
    The more information you type in each field, the shorter and more accurate
    your results will be.
    Within some categories, you can specify that you want to use several
    different search providers. Then you can quickly search more than one
    provider without retyping your query by clicking the Next button at the top
    of the Search bar.
