How to set google.com as the default search engine through group policy??

    Question

  • Hi

    1. i want to set www.google.com as the default search explorer in IE9 by using group policies in mandatory profile???

    2. How to autologon a non-admin user without using a password? By not usinga a password, i mean a blank password.

    3. How to resrict non-admin users from searching the system folders?

     

    all this has to be done using local group policies.

    1. Refer to this: Group Policy - Change default Search Provider in IE7,8 and 9.

    2. The password cannot be blank. But you can auto logon a non-admin user. See this: http://www.windows7library.com/blog/security/setting-up-automatic-login/#more-1106 

    (Note: Since the site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.)

    3. You can specify the locations to be excluded from indexing by using Group Policy. Navigate to: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Search, on the right-panel, configure "Default Excluded paths" and "Default Indexed paths"
