IE 9 Search Provider Corrupted...pls help!

Recently I had a few issues with my laptop and since then I keep getting this message:

"A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider setting for Internest Exporer.
Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your orignal search provider, Google (
Internet Explorer will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers."

I have tried various ways eliminate it but to not success.

Please can you advise me what is the best way to get rid of this message?

Many thanks,
