When keying a letter g on my keyboard when on google the whole screen clears and it takes me sort of a google home page with just another search box etc. I have typed this on word and then cut and pasted because otherwise I would not be able to type google or anything else with a letter g in it. Please help with a non geeky explanation. Simple as poss please Many thanks xx

Hi diversandy. Do you have a laptop or desktop ?
If it is a desktop, try using another keyboard.

Well, it is a desktop but I do not have another keyboard available. However, I have half sorted the problem now. If I go up onto the blue circle - tools to the right of the little house and printer and page logos, and I go to Toolbars and switch off Dynamic searcher and ASK toolbar the problem is solved, but only temporarily. If I switch computer off the problem comes back and I have to switch these off again. Nuisance !! Any more help would be appreciated. :-)
