Problem on laptop with facebook 'search'.

  pphil10 11:15 06 Oct 2018

I have had a problem in the last few weeks with facebook. When I get a page up the word 'sound' appears in the search bar on facebook, it then shows a dropdown menu of related items for 'sound'. I have never actually searched for the word sound so I don't know where it has come from. I delete it each time but it just keeps coming back with every click I make on the page. I have deleted all my search history from the settings on facebook, deleted cookies, run a virus scan, used crap cleaner, logged out of facebook then back in and I have done a system restore none of which are clearing it.

It is also happening on 3 different browsers. It is only happening on my laptop not on my phone. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this please.
