    I want to turn it OFF not on, how can I get rid of the auto complete key word suggestion. i hate it.

    I dislike it too. There is a preference link next to the search box on Google where you can select: Do not provide query suggestions in the search box. (near the bottom of the page). That only seems to work for a while and then a cookie expires or Google resets it.

    I found that using the following URL, which someone else posted, works as a permanent “off switch”:


    I pasted that in the URLs of my bookmarks in Mozilla and Firefox and favorites in Internet Exploder and I also entered it as a link on my personal home page. No more “autocomplete”. Perhaps if enough people do this, Google will get the hint from their web stats.
