I use https ://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0 as my home page. No auto suggestions and no requests. Only thing is if I want to get to Amazon for example I have to type uk after it.

This can be stopped for Firefox and Chrome by downloading Adblock 1.3.10. and entering "##DIV#mgmhppd" as a new filter rule. Unfortunately, the Adblock version downloaded to IE is not the same. There is no option to enter filter rules. It seems Microsoft is happy to annoy its users by allowing Google to plant rubbish on your screen time after time.
