The settings button is the cog in the top right hand corner. I know what you mean about the things like Google Instant being irritating though. It drove me to Bing and I've never looked back.

There is no settings option anywhere on the page.

Clicking "Even more" just throws me to their products page.

The only thing I see on the right is "Sign in", as you can see in my screenshot.

And I have never had to in order to turn off Instant Search.

Another bad design choice:

You have to make a search first then the cog appears:

No you don't have to sign in. It SHOULD be to the immediate right of the sign in button.

Another way to edit prefs is to quit using it (Google) !!

As one poster said above, Googles annoying crap like this is what has made me NEVER use Google!!

You dont have to sign in. You have to make a search first and then in the search results, the cog shows up and then you can change it.
