    When I am trying to use the general search function in Win XP sp3 (all recent
    updates) from the start menu, I get the following error message:

    An error has occurred in the script on this page

    Line: 38
    Char: 5
    Error: permission denied
    Code: 0
    URL: http://ie.search.msn.com/sa/5_12_0_512943/srchasst.js

    Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

    Yes or No

    What could I do to correct this?

    Probably go back to IE6. That Search Assist technology is obsolete
    AFAIK. Barely supported the last time I saw it when I was still running
    XP. Why not use IE8's Search bar? E.g. press Ctrl-e and start your
    search from there?

    BTW please try to include all the information in your Subject in the body of
    your post too. Many newsreaders search both areas of the post separately.

    To Robert,

    Still a Side search Pain ita. The guys in cn can't get the grips on it.

    To Jiger,

    Click the 'Customize' button on the Side Search Pane in IE6 and select a
    Bing search provider. The MSN links are being rebranded to Bing and slowly
    phased out.

    Regards.

    Do you guys in fact mean that the search function from the start menu in XP,
    search on the internet, simply does not work in IE8?

    In that case I am satisfied, because I don`t normally use this function to
    search, but I dicovered this error by accident and wanted to know whether
    this was a symptom of a more general script problem in my machine, and if I
    understand you correct, it is not, OK?

    I'm not sure that even works with IE6 any more. I don't have a clear
    recollection of what happened the last time that I tested that but I'm
    pretty sure it wasn't a great experience. You could probably go no further
    than XPsp1. E.g. I think XPsp2 was the beginning of the end of that
    feature. ; )

    If anything besides MSN no longer supporting unbranded searching it will be
    security/obscurity and the removal of shell integration (e.g. no longer
    "seamless" use of your file system and your Internet browsing by both IE and
    WE.) In fact, I'd say it never was really "seamless" just very usable
    when switching modes. Existing functionality was essentially just ripped
    out of IE6sp2 and more in IE7 in order to try to enforce this delineation
    between Internet access and local computer access but some of the UI
    elements that were in Windows couldn't be changed until the next version of
    Windows (e.g. Vista). That search you were trying to use is a good example
    of that. Think of it as a ramp to an overpass that no longer exists and
    the error you're getting as a (cryptic) "road closed" sign. ; )

    Do you mean the Search icon from the Start menu, and then when you get the
    search app up you click Search the Internet at the bottom left? I just tried
    this on my PC here using XP SP3 and IE8, works fine - spits up a load of
    results from Bing. It's set at the default setting of

    "With Search Companion ... etc"

    which you can get to from "Change preferences" at the bottom left. I'd never
    used this before which is why I'd never changed it to a search provider from
    the list. At a guess some of the old scripts those providers references
    don't work properly since the security changes in IE. Switch it back to
    Search Companion, and you'll at least get Bing results rather than a script
    error.

    I have no idea if this will help as I have the English version. Anyway,
    here goes.

    (1) Start the Search application

    (2) Click "Change preferences"

    (3) Click "Change Internet search behaviour"

    (4) Select the top radio button option "With Search Companion ...", and if
    desired change the default search engine using the list below. Do not select
    the bottom option "With Classic Internet search".

    Does that help?

    Hi Jiger,

    We are all confused. That is Windows Search (Start>Search), not the IE8
    Search Box or the IE6 Search Pane.

    The script error you provided is a left over from IE6 and it appears that it
    has slipped through the testing process and/or has not been removed from
    your Start menu.

    ..... Testing on an XP virtual image with IE8.

    Start>Search - loads Windows Explorer with the Search Companion side pane
    with a number of options
    - Search for Files
    ......
    - Search the Internet....

    Select Search the Internet... a text area field opens up to enter your
    search terms.

    Enter search terms and press ok.

    On my VI image I get the error message
    "Unexpected Error"
    "Action could not be completed"
    <answer>
    Short answer.... Do not use the Start>Search option, use the IE8 Search Box
    instead for Internet Searches.
    </answer>
    or
    Start>Search - to display the Windows/Internet Explorer Search Companion.
    Select "Change Internet search behavior" from the options.
    The select the option "With Classic Internet search"
    A selection list will then open up with choices of provider, one of them
    being MSN.
    Select Google.... opps that does not work either.... the Short answer is the
    only answer.

    Probable reason why you are getting a different error message - have you
    installed SP3 yet for XP?

    If you like go to http://iecustomizer.com/iepanels and select a side bar
    search provider from my listing there. (the Bing Side bars are still in
    beta, so they are still a bit flakey)

    Bing listing - http://iecustomizer.com/iepanels/?txtProvider=Bing
    Google listing - http://iecustomizer.com/iepanels/?txtProvider=Google

    You will have to join the site with a valid email address to enable the
    download buttons on the page.

    Regards.

    I am not quite sure that I understand everything that you write, but:

    Yes, I have XP sp3 with all relevant updates and yes I am using
    Windows/start menu search and under search options I simply get "How do you
    want to use the Search Companion?" and not anything like "Change Internet
    search behavior".

    Under "Search for Files" there is nothing like "Search the Internet...."

    My question is: Is there anything I can do to fix this or do I have yo live
    with his?

    As I said before, I am normally not using this feature, I discovered the
    error more or less by accident..
