What is the name of the google search box toolbar that sits next to
the clock on the taskbar? I don't want the one that searches my hard
drive. I want the one that opens the default browser (in my case Opera) and you
can choose news, map, images web or I'm feeling lucky. It was my most
used google thing but stopped working when I installed IE7. So I
thought I would delete it and reinstall it, but I can't find it! Help
me please.
