    I block google suggest by adding clients1.google* in to our block list. Works a treat. Well until google undoubtedly change something.

    I've redirected the Intranet link to:

    www.google.co.uk/webhp?complete=0&hl=en

    ...since this is the main way people access it. That URL doesn't prompt you with mindless suggestions.
