    The record of search history which appears in the search box on Yahoo! and all other search sites is actually a feature controlled by your browser, not Yahoo! or the search site. Clearing history or cookies will not remove the search history. Clearing history only removes the history of sites visited not searches. If you have Internet Explorer as your browser, you may stop the search history from being generated by following the instructions below: 1. Select the the 'Tools' menu in Internet Explorer. 2. Select 'Internet Options', then select the 'Content' tab. 3. Under Personal information, click on the 'AutoComplete' box. On the AutoComplete Settings window you can click the 'Clear Forms' box to delete your current history, or you can uncheck the Forms box to permanently stop the generation of the search history. A single item can be deleted by pressing the 'delete' key while the item is highlighted. If you have Firefox as your browser, you may stop the search history from being generated by following the instructions below: 1. Select the the 'Tools' menu in Firefox. 2. Select 'Options', then select the 'Privacy' button, and then the 'Saved Forms' tab. In the window you can click the 'Clear Saved Form Data Now' box to delete your current history, or you can uncheck the "Save Information' box to permanently stop the generation of the search history. A single item can be deleted by pressing the 'shift delete' key while the item is highlighted.

    Im not sure how to keep them off but if you want to delete them, then you can press the down arrow in the search box (a drop down should appear with all the terms you searched for) and then, you select one (by pressing the down/up arrow) and hit the delete key on your keyboard...

    Hope that helps...

    EDIT: Sorry...I misunderstood the question...I didnt see from YAHOO SAERCH BAR...I thought you meant when searching using the yahoo website...
