    very slick, I found this article helpful too: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/geek-stuff/search-internet-from-microsoft-windows-7-start-menu/It mentions right at the top that you need Windows 7 Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate to use the group policy editor. Although a registry edit is very possible manually for those that have home edition.
