    I got it to stop showing in my IE by opening a browser, clicking the X in the corner of the chrome window, closing the page again immediately. When i reopened it was gone but I don't know how long it will stay like that.

    I use firefox with igoogle. If you try it, delete most of what it auto-fills in and add something you want to see. I have up the weather from 5 cities, kid's joke of the day and german word of the day.

    Yeah I have tried the same thing as handygal and X'd out of it and it goes for a while, then pops up again randomly, it may also appear if you clean out cookies (so could using CCLeaners Cookie option keep the Google one once you have X'd out of it)

    Also in IE, check this setting for Userdata persistence and its found by opening OE nd clicking Tools > Internet Options > Security > click the Internet security zone icon (1st globe icon) > Custom Level and scroll down to UserData persistance and select Enable (it maybe already set by default but just check)

    Or use BING, but as its Googles own search engine, as a company they have the right to advertise their products and as a consumer if we dont like that practice then change search engine as there are better ones or email the company with feedback as to why you dont like this addition and can their be an option in the google account menus to dissable items like this.
