Google searchbox moved top left

  martd7 20:13 27 May 2015

When I open google search in IE 11 and start typing in the search box it jumps to the top left hand side of the page as from today

Ive googled the problem and have reset IE as some sites suggest yet the problem remains

Any help appreciated

"When I open google search in IE 11 ............"

Are you talking about the Google webpage? If you are then you can change that behavior by clicking on "Settings" (bottom right) then "Search Settings". In the "Google Instant predictions" section, set it to "Never", scroll down to the bottom then click on "Save".

If that works then the cause of your "problem" could be because your Google cookie was deleted and Google Instant predictions reverted to its default setting.

Thanks for the feedback chaps :)

"..........whats made it change overnight I don't know..........."

Your Google preferences are stored in your Google cookie so did you perhaps delete it or do something silly like run CCleaner?

Is CCleaner a bad thing to use.

I wouldn't call it "bad" - "unnecessary" is probably a better description because it won't make your computer run any better and it frequently removes things that folks find useful.

No haven't run ccleaner for a week,i did run Antimalwarebytes threat scan which just found a few "pups" wouldn't think that would affect it,hasnt done before

You can unset the checkboxes in the Windows and Appllications Tabs in Ccleaner for less cleaning if desired.

I think I've kept mostly as default

All I notice after running Cleaner is I have to login to sites again that I normally don't bother logging out of.

If you backup browser (and email client) profiles regularly they can be recovered if inexplicable or unfixable problems arise
