Google .
« on: May 07, 2010, 02:30:40 PM »
Any of the forum members got an easy solution I could use to remove  the Google "Everthing " sidebar ? I am using I.E 7 and have wasted hrs trying system restore , altering settings and asking other family members if they had changed anything , only to  later find many other irate users with this problem on the web. Thank you .

forget system restore ::) that's a Google feature, if it can't be turned off through Google search settings, then it can't be turned off  ;)

IE8 is much better and safer than IE7.

Is the Google toolbar in Tools then Manage Add-ons?

Tried I.E 8 when it came out and preferred I.E 7 . You don't have any option to disable this function . Plenty of people on the web going crazy about it being enforced on users .

I would rather put up with this than use scroogle scraper the look is absolutely terrible, and I'm normally not one to care about aesthetics over function but this makes me sick.

Toolbars are actually useless!

I learned never to use them because installing is easy and removal is tough in some cases

It isn't a toolbar, read the topic and essentially look at the image provided by Logos in Reply #4.

Found this:

So you can use:

Seems the google forums are on fire with this...

I'm not sure this link will work forever, as they'll probably get rid of the old interface once the new one gets implemented everywhere. I've had the new interface off and on, they've been testing during months, so I wonder why people didn't shout before the final implementation yesterday ;D
...not even mentioning that the new interface is an improvement imo, but people need to shout when anything changes ::)
 and hey, there's more to come, I've seen a new interface for the news too, and that's in the same style ;D

This is another good link on this very hot subject, http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Web%20Search/thread?tid=67f6459e09a827ee&hl=en it has a number of other related topics in wait for it the 'Right hand' side bar.

So now we have one really long thin middle column with the results in that topic ironic ;D

This by all accounts stems from the iGoogle or personalised google interface, so leave these who don't use iGoogle alone.

I came to google many years ago as it was a breath of fresh, clean air with an uncluttered look and feel. I don't doubt that this was why many others used google when it first came out, before it became a by word for search 'google it.'

They have shot themselves in the foot here.
