    Suddenly the bing search widget appeared on the screen, it appears over all apps, it doesn't search anything, I can just type. If I drag it to bottom of screen there is no sign of cancel it.

    see the screenshot, anyone knows how to get rid of this.

    It must be a widget of an App you installed recently.
    Can't you press and hold it and drag to top and remove it?

    Its kind of floating icon ( like display over other app) as it is displaying in home screen & over all other app also but when I drag it to bottom or top there is no sign of cancelling it.

    Hmm. Check the list of apps which have display overlay turned on. Uninstall the one which was recently installed.

    I'm having the same issue. I just I stalled a ton of games last night, mostly RPG and apocalypse style games. Anyone else. Looking at list I can add them to compare with others.

    How many VPN apps have you installed? The general rule is, as soon as it's stated it's for free, things like this are bound to happen.
