"Attempted default search change" in Chrome

I'm having an issue with Chrome that is really bothering me.
From what i think is this could be some new feature in the latest version of Chrome.
Problem is, I'm in Vietnam and so the default Google search engine would be Me preferring English, I changed the default engine to search English results. The problem occurs when i close Chrome and clear browsing data or run CCleaner, upon opening Chrome again i get this View image: Attempted default search change

Anyone know how to fix and why this happens?

Yes I get the same thing on two machines. Whenever I run CCleaner that message is the first to show when I open Chrome again. And by the looks of it about 14k have the same issue as that many so far have "Liked" it on Facebook.

So i guess its a problem in the latest versions of Chrome then?
I've just installed a previous version, the last of the 18. It seems good so far without changing the default search engine. it actually keeps my settings for the extensions as well where the current one deletes them all.

Change default location for "Change Icon..." button?
In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon. Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?
Chrome hack to keep the "Find..." search box visible all the time?
Minor annoyance turned into a major one because I'm anal like that. Is there a way to keep the "Find" search box down all the time in Chrome when you're searching for a word/phrase/etc.? If I go to another web page the search box closes, then I gotta open it again. Really ticks me off.
