Default IE Search hijacked... by MICROSOFT

The search bar in my IE6 recently changed to MSN with the stupid butterfly. The other choices (Yahoo, etc) no longer show up in the "Next" tool. In fact the Next box is greyed.

How do I revert back to the old search thingie?

Resetting his homepage has absolutely nothing to do with his problem.

Try running hijack this and removing the msn search settings that way.
