Well that just messes up everything I was thinking :-(

Please try and make the same file. Surf to YouTube, right click somewhere on the page and select "view source" (or something like that). Once that opens, copy/paste/save all of the code into text file via notepad. Name it something that ends in html. Drag and drop that file into the body of the Chrome browser. See if you can type into the form.

You might need to unhide the file's extension:

If you still have the file, great - if not, please save it again and attach it to a post.

Just as a test, you might want to uninstall AVAST and try MSE.

Thanks - I'm comparing that file to the one that I saved. I've not found a difference that would break the search form.

I should have suggested that you log out before capturing/saving/posting that file. You might want to remove it from the post now since it has your e-mail address inside it.

I'll keep looking for a reason - but I think I'll ask others in the forum to take a look at this.

Hiya I might be wrong here but I didn't see you renew the chrome-profile on your computer.
Just like in Firefox a defective profile can render your browser useless. And if you re install chrome, chances are the same profile is used for that too.
It's quite simple and usually clears things up:
#1 close Chrome (you might even check in Taskmanager if it's really closed
#2 go to C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\
There you'll find the folder Default rename it to something like Default.Backup or so
#3 Start Chrome a new folder Default will be created and thus your profile is renewed.
#4 It's generally not recommended because some things there were corrupted, but if everything works as expected you may carefully put items from the old profile back into the new one (like bookmarks etc.)
Of course chrome need to be closed again at that time

Good luck

Thanks for posting the solution.

How odd that Chrome managed to get into that state.
