"Find more providors.." server busy?

  1. "Find more providers.." server busy?

    I'm setting up a new laptop for Mrs Hornet, and trying to change from Bing (shudder) to Google in the search provider box top right.

    all I get is "server busy", I tried it on my desktop and got the same result so it's not the laptop; does anybody know why Microsoft's servers would be overloaded on the 20th of December?

    I've set up hundreds or more computers and never had the 'search providers' option not available.....
  2. Could just be genuine server load. The providers list would have to be generated, so it's possible. Mind you, you'd think that providing a list of providers as a simple, albeit dynamically generated list, wouldn't be that taxing.

    It's a conspiracy!

    I've heard that Bing has a good algorithm now and it provides searches comparable to Google. I still prefer the layout of Google atm though.
  3. Google chrome is much better than plain old Google
