If I want to change the following value in my registry:
http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB_RFC1766}/srchasst/srchasst.htm
to google for example, how do I write out the line. In fact if I want to change msn wherever it comes up in my registry to google or something else what is the easiest way to go about it.

Why don't you just change your home page? Maybe I'm not understanding the question.......

Hi,

I have changed my homepage.

What I would also like to change are the "CustomizeSearch" and "AssistantSearch" values in the registry. At the moment they are respectively:

http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB_RFC1766}/srchasst/srchcust.htm
http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB_RFC1766}/srchasst/srchasst.htm

Thanks again

Actually the easiest way to change those is through the IE user interface.

Select Search, then in the left pane, "customize" and then "autosearch settings".
