You should be modifying the (:searchresults:) directive, rather than the 
(:searchbox:) directive.

If you have (:searchresults group=-PmWiki, -Site:) in your Site/Search 
page then all searches that use that page will be modified to exclude 
those groups.  That includes both the searchbox that appears in the 
Site/Search page, and the searchbox that appears on the header of your 
skin.  (Also any other searchbox on any other page that doesn't have its 
own searchresults directive).

Take a look at PmWiki/Search and PmWiki/PageLists for more info.
