  1. what is this securify i see when i'm searching


    i type something into the chrome browser and the first line i see for suggested searches is secruify at the end of a possible search link. i searched that and got a ton of ways for possible removal but they all call that securify a type of virus that my virus protection has not removed. so i hesitate to use them to remove that securify as they to could be some type of virus.

    so i ask here to see if this secruify is any good and leave it or remove it and with what? i see it is in the extensions and turned on but in the extensions it claims to be some type of security for the chrome browser. if it is just benign i can leave it if it is dangerous i can turn off and remove that extension but before i go down that road i figure some here may have some knowledge if i should let it go or remove it and if removing that extension will actually remove it completely? thanks

    Securify for Chrome
    Securify warns you before stumbling on malicious sites referred from Search Engines or otherwise. Malicious extension alerts [Beta]


    oh! what is that Browser WatchDog for Chrome Browser Watchdog offers an easy scan and cleanup of your browser extensions. and is that any good. i came across that also and does it actually do any good? thanks.

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    what is this securify i see when i'm searching

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?
