You should be able to modify the search settings here: www.google.co.uk/preferences just remember to hit save at the bottom. I have a Google account and I am always logged in, perhaps that is why it always remembers it for me.

The issue I have been having is since this 'update' I have been unable to turn off the 'suggestions' that appear when you begin typing in the search box. I personally find this extremely annoying as I type faster than I could click any of the suggestions, so never use the feature.

Although I have just found a way around it by using www.google.co.uk/webhp?complete=0 as my homepage instead. The "webhp?complete=0" seems to disable the suggestions thankfully.

I have got use to the side bar being on Google now but it really does annoy me when they add features without an option to turn on/off. I hear a lot of people are now using Bing instead but I find that just the same, too much stuff being rammed down my throat with no options to customise :(

It comes back on after you press the 'clear recent history'
