If you are referring to Google web search - first clear your browser cache then delete any other temporary files on your system. See if this resolves the issue.

If you are referring to the Google desktop search program this is a different issue. You should uninstall this program from the control panel and then reinstall it and see if the problem resolves.

Be sure to run a virus scan on your computer and ensure there is no malware anywhere on your system that may be causing the issue.

Hope this helps.

Please do let me know how you get on and thanks for using FixYa.

My computer is locked in the BIOS Setting

I assume you have already tried the Dell site & searched (using eg google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS reset' so I'll not bother repeating your efforts.

Since you posted here, I can only assume you have been unable to find any information about special power-on key combinations or any small holes underneath (where a paperclip can be used to reset the BIOS) ... in which case your only option is to dismantle the laptop, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for 30 seconds or so.

To find out how to dismantle the laptop, search (google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS Battery replacement' ....
