    1. Use the "Search tools" link under the search box
    A row of search tools links will appear.

    2. Click "the Web" on the search tools links.

    3. Click "Pages from New Zealand" on the drop-down menu which appears.

    Then you are looking in the wrong place. It took me about 2 seconds to
    find it from Richard's description.

    Where Richard said. Do a search, then in Firefox it is down the left
    hand side. In Chrome you have to click on "Search Options".

    I did get it to work once but not now at all, there is a Google bar at
    the top of the screen with a search button but it does not do a thing.


    Same in Firefox.

    Mainly XP but its dual boot Win7.

    I have a Very good HP $800 scanner and no Vista or Win7 drivers for it,
    plus I am not that happy with Win7 its a pain to drive.

    HP scanjet 5470C

    Many many hits on this on Google.

    Mind you I got at the Dealer price $400 from HP due to my other scanner
    had bad Software, and that was some 2.5 years old, over 3000 hit on
    Google for that model.

    As much as I hate to agree with Roger, I have to do so here about google's
    'cleaned up' look. I complained to them when they did it.
    At the same time, they also broke what was a simple and easy to understand
    advanced search page by introducing so much extra rubbish it now goes off
    the bottom of the page.
