If you look through the link you will see others asking the same question - maybe the answer is there. I didn't look for it because I am not affected by it.

Apr 24, 2013 – The other week, AJ Kohn noticed that Google dropped the related searches search option from the options in the search tools.

This is from my link above!

May sound crazy, but do you have the Google toolbar on show? The wrench is on the far right, next to the "Sign in". To confirm, Right Click in main (top) toolbar, and make sure Google toolbar is checked.

If you want it, see here:

Google toolbar

I have it as I use Google as my front page and my primary search engine. I also have my anti virus supplier's toolbar (Avira) which privides real time monitoring and additional anti tracking protection.
