"Suggested Sites" keeps showing up in my favorites tool bar in IE11.

"Suggested Sites"  keeps showing up in my favorites tool bar in IE11.  I have followed all the instructions given in answers before.  I have deleted it.  It is unchecked in advanced options. I have deleted in the registry.  It is not in the addin's . Windows Live Search does not appear on the remove programs. I think it is gone but then the next time I start IE, there is again! I DON"T WANT IT!

Have you tried disabling it in group policy?  If so, sorry, but if not:

1) Start->Run (or type WinKey + R) then type gpedit.msc
2) Within this dialog, select Local Computer Policy, then User Configuration, then dministrative Templates, then Windows Components, then Internet Explorer.
3) Find "Turn on Suggested Sites" and double click it.
4) Click the "Disabled" radio button, then OK.

Hopefully this should do the trick.

Try doing a Full Reset of IE. Go to IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Reset. Click on the box (check it) that says "Delete personal data"

"full reset"  been there done that. I could solve the problem but I would have to spend "hours" getting IE back to the settings I want.  If that is the only solution I wiil put up with it.

Try running IE in a different, new, test Windows User Profile (account) . The issue may be profile related and if so, you may just want to live with it for a while.

Is "Suggested Sites" what you see when you first start typing in the Address line?  If so, here is how to stop that.

@pcorathers  - Please let us know what happens in a different Windows User Profile.

I do not get Suggested Sites at all, but the methods we gave you have not worked for you.

That solved the problem but the key was not in the area indicated I found it by looking under the "all services" section.
