First, take a second to use the shift key, add some periods, and spell check. It will make it a lot more likely that you'll get helped.

Now, what do you mean by search box? Do you mean the search bar next to the address bar? Or do you mean the CTRL-F find search box? Also, does this happen as soon as you type anything in the box, or is it only after you submit your search? Does it happen only if you push "Enter" to enter your search query, or does it happen if you click the magnifying glass/next button?

When you say you've tried "everything," what does that mean? If you actually tried everything, then either you would have found a solution, or by exhausting all possibilities, you would no that no solution exists. So walk us through what steps you've taken to troubleshoot the problem.

When you say you "have hundreds of them," what are "them"? And what do you mean "all they say is search"? Is it a text file that just says "search" inside it? Is it an html file named "search"?

If you give us a little bit more to go on, we can probably help you.

Try creating a new profile, and see if it happens with that one.
