How can I completely remove the search box from the top righthand side of header?
Is there a way to widgetize the top right header area?
You can remove the following line in the header.php and add your widget code in its place:
See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_sidebar as a quick reference for creating a new sidebar area.
When I remove the get_search_form function, it blows up the layout when rendered in Internet Explorer 8 and 9. It drops the entire site to the left side of the page. Another crazy thing is that the entire site is non-clickable. Meaning I cannot click on any links. I verified that the ending of the PHP function is still in tact as well. This same behavior happens as well when I try and remove the social bookmarks from the header in the same section. Chrome and Firefox of course work just fine.
