Q. How can I remove the Instant Search box from the Internet Explorer 7 Address bar?

The new Instant Search box allows you to search using different providers.

If you don't need or want to offer this capability, you can remove the Instant Search box without affecting your ability to enter search parameters for your default search provider into the Address box.

To remove the Instant Search box from the Internet Explorer 7 Address bar:

1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

2. Open a CMD.EXE window.

3. Type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InfoDelivery\Restrictions" /V NoSearchBox /T REG_DWORD /F /D 1
