I tried that and I still have the problem, though it has changed slightly. The box is different but still tries to finish my words. and there are no buttons (x or settings) this time. See for yourself.

Can you post a screen of your extensions manager?

Are you perchance referring to Chrome's "Instant" feature? There should be a link to switch it off right beside the search box, at least if you browse to your Google "home" page, www.google.com/ig

Edit: my bad, you specifically mentioned a separate search bar.
