I always click No Thanks, but it doesn't remember the setting.
- IE 10

You probably configured your Internet Explorer to either block or forget cookies. Google then always treats you as a new user and suggests "improvements".
One reason this might happen (and it did in OP's case) is that the option Internet Options -> Delete browsing history on exit is checked. Unchecking it might solve the problem.
You can either have privacy or convenience here: either accept cookies from google.com, or get used to the banner.
EDIT: Here's how to check if this is cookie-related:
Lowering privacy options normally helps, but in my case, it didn't.
Fixed it (and many other websites): Internet Options -> Uncheck "Delete browsing history on exit".
This option was instructing IE to always forget my cookies; even if the privacy settings allowed IE to store cookies, every time IE closed, it would deliberately delete them.
