Hey JohnHFromBRissie,

 

Take a look at the answer provided by PA Bear in this thread for another user.

Search box problem – Search box has become corrupted

 

Once you have done that you should be able to either use Bing or switch search providers without any problems.

Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer

 

Hope that helps.
