Safe Search Side Bar

Hey there

 

For the past month or so, I've been getting a really annoying sidebar down the left side of my screen.  It's called 'Safe Search', and it shows the options to have it 'Off', 'Low', or 'Strict'.  But even though I highlight the 'Off' choice, It still won't go away. 

 

I don't know why or how this started to appear, but I find it very annoying, and it seems to affect my searches, by cutting out a lot of options.  For example, a search on 'Castle' will show the TV series Castle, but not historic castles. 

 

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

probably malware that you allowed to install -  so a cleaner like Malwarebytes should zap it for you?

& a broken link ?
