Default No "Customize" by Search Companion and...

No "Customize" by Search Companion and...

I re-installed XP and now get an error message when trying to search from the Address bar.

I would like to use Google but don't have "Customize" beside the "Search Companion" when I open the "Search" window.

I also have Zone Alarm.

The message I get is:

"Service Unavailable - DNS failure
The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later."

I was playing around and found the search companion finally. I didnt know that this existed and didnt really want to get into the know-hows of using it as I think its a little slow for searching.
Wouldnt it be better just to set google to your homepage (or as a favorite atleast) and just search from there.

PS:if I type something in my address bar it searhces google anyway, and Im not to postive how i got that.
