Cool search utility ...

Find below the script which would help you all in searching contents within "msdn", "dictionary", "msn", "yahoo", "netscape", "Google" and within my blogspace with ease.

Script:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\dic]
@="http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=%s"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\google]
@="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%s"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\msdn]
@="http://search.microsoft.com/search/results.aspx?qu=%s"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\net]
@="http://search.netscape.com/ns/search?fromPage=NSCPTop&query=%s"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\msn]
@="http://search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=%s"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\yahoo]

Step 1: Copy - Paste the above script into a notepad. Save the file as "SearchUtility_IE.reg".
Step 2: Double click on the .reg file.
Step 3: Open Internet explorer and try this dic test

Also try the following if you have direct access to internet:
