    The default search was taken over by OpenDNS (I've never done anything with OpenDNS and hadn't even heard of it until it took over) on both FF (Firefox) and IE (Internet Explorer). I found a site about how to change it on FF and that took care of that one. But once in a while sites require IE (grrr...) and it would be nice to not have to go to google before searching. Any permanent fix ideas? My roommate got it too. He reinstalled vista and it came back...
    I run Windows XP Pro SP2, by the way.

    OpenDNS just doesn't take over. Someone had to set it up....
