Re: How do I get extraneous bars off IE?
All three of those toolbars can be disabled from IE> Tools> Manage add-ons.
If by Google Search Bar you mean the search bar to the right of the Address
Bar, I wouldn't bother trying to remove it.
Bookmarks? The Links bar? That can be uncheckd from IE> View> Toolbars.
I'm not sure why you downloaded IE8 Beta 2, but I would definitely not
Hope this helps,
