Internet Explorer

Cannot add Google as a search provider in internet explorer

Could not add Google as a search provider in IE.  The button to click to add was not click-able.

This was caused by Microsoft patch 3038314.  This was released 14 April 2015.

To resolve I merged the following into the registry.

NOTE: EDITING THE REGISTRY IS DANGEROUS – USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes]
“DefaultScope”=”{69E838CD-0DFC-450B-B674-181F2E91D433}”

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{69E838CD-0DFC-450B-B674-181F2E91D433}]
“DisplayName”=”Google”
“OSDFileURL”=”http://www.iegallery.com/AddOns/DownloadAddOn?resourceId=813”
“FaviconURL”=”http://www.google.com/favicon.ico”
“ShowSearchSuggestions”=dword:00000001
“URL”=”http://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:{language}:{referrer:source}&ie={inputEncoding?}&oe={outputEncoding?}”
“SuggestionsURL”=”http://clients5.google.com/complete/search?q={searchTerms}&client=ie8&mw={ie:maxWidth}&sh={ie:sectionHeight}&rh={ie:rowHeight}&inputencoding={inputEncoding}&outputencoding={outputEncoding}”
