Address bar autocomplete question

    I'm running WXP SP2 with IE6 on a freshly reinstalled OS from HP's "full
    system recovery to original system" type disks.

    Previously, at some point when I used Google's advanced search
    http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en, the address bar auto complete
    dropdown list had something like "Google Advanced Search" from the title of
    that web page. I liked it in that it was the first item in the list when I
    type goo in the address bar.

    On this fresh reinstallation of the OS, that "Google Advanced Search" item
    is not being set up in the auto complete dropdown. How can I force it to be
    there? What is it that puts things other than a URL in that address bar
    dropdown?
