Add Google search provider to IE

Has anyone else noticed that Microsoft have made it really difficult to add Google as a search provider in IE?  It really should be (and did used to be) a simple case of clicking the little down arrow next to the address bar search providers (only Bing on a new install of Windows), then clicking find more providers and clicking Google from the page this opens and clicking install.  NO MORE; Google does not even seem to be in the add search providers page.  Whats all that about?

I found that by going direct to the Microsoft add search providers to Internet Explorer page http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx Google is there and I can easily add it.  Thanks for making it simple Bill.
