fm250,

If you have Google Desktop or Google Toolbar, they will interfere IE7 search. Disable the Google programs and IE7 search will work.

Something is wrong with your IE7 Search.  Delete one of the Google listed in search  and test if you still have a problem.

If no joy, uninstall and reinstall IE7.
