Windows 7: No Search Suggestions in IE 9

I have finally got it working. Problem is it wasn't a simple one-step process that fixed it. I was being helped by an experienced Microsoft MVP. I'm not experienced enough to go through all the steps the MVP put me through to help you. It was a very time consuming fix. I would suggest going to the Microsoft Answer Forums and post to the Internet Explorer group. You will need a Windows Live ID to log on and post, (as in any forum).

Good luck,
James

Thanks. Turns out I had autocomplete turned off.

Tools -> Internet options -> Content -> Autocomplete Settings -> Turned on autocomplete for search only.

We messed around fo 2 days. I'm wondering if it was all necessary.
He even hinted that my computer might have been highjacked. I was getting ready to format my HD.

To add a search to IE 9, 10, 11 search and install the Quero Toolbar.
It adds a search box to the right of the Menu toolbar in IE 9, 10, 11.

Please print out and read about all the options.

Interesting choice in toolbar suggestion ?

If anyone wanted or needed Google search they would be better off using Google toolbar

Or as the 3 some odd year old thread suggests,

The first reason for using the Quero toolbar is that it does not occupy any additional screen area like a normal toolbar would. It uses the free screen area to the right of the menu toolbar, but if you do not use the menu toolbar then I guess this is a problem.

The second reason for using it is that the search provider is not fixed to a specific provider, like Google or Yahoo toolbar are.

The Quero Toolbar allows you select your search provider from the right most drop down list box, i.e.
Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.

You can add your own search providers to the list or delete any of the standard providers listed.
I just selected Google as my default.

Options allow you to setup the Search Box to only display your entered search text just like IE 8 worked.

If you only want to search using Google then just use the Goggle toolbar.

Yea that's nice but you can also use Ctrl+E as long as you have downloaded another search provider it will be listed
