How do I remove the search box on IE 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently updated IE to IE8, and discovered tons of junk on the tool bar.  I managed to get rid of most of it, but I have not discovered a way to get rid of the search box on the right.  How do I get rid of that?  I don't like it, and don't use it.  As it is, I only use IE when I have no other choice -- I do not like it and never have -- and doubt I ever will.  I like it even less now, with that unnecessary search box taking up space.  I have Google as my homepage, and I use that to search the internet.


    I noticed today that there is no Home button, to take me back to my homepage.  Where did that go?  You added garbage and deleted the stuff that people use?
