On the IE 6 tool bar, click on the search Icon.

In the search Window tool bar, select customize.

Choose the search engine that you desire to be your default search tool.

I also recommend that you run a Spy-Ware checker such as AdAware from www.lavasoft.de
or Spybot Search and Destroy from www.download.com

Open IE and then left click on tools and then on the drop down menu click on Internet Options on the window that opens up you have the default address you can chose to manually type in the address you want or you could try clicking on USE DEFAULT this may work depending on what was done to alter the original setting. But either way this is the way to alter the opening page of IE

The above is related to the Home Page default, if you mean searching from the address bar, then go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, near the bottom of the list is a section called "Search from the address bar" there are 4 options, one being "Do not search from the address bar"

good luck
