Ubuntu – making unity dash filters stick


first time poster. I have deselected nearly all categories and sources in unity search filter but every time I type something new they are automatically re-enabled (music/amazon/ebay/lots more) I would like my filtering to be permanent (at least until the computer is shut down) as I do not require any of these results

I have searched my problem and not found an answer. I apologise if its already been covered.

You should be able to turn off Online Scopes in the Privacy Settings. enter image description here

There is a list of the available scopes/lenses here, you should be able to remove them in software centre, or with sudo apt-get remove....
