    I know and I have some easy to follow steps:

    However, if you wish to delete search history saved by the browser and auto-filled when you type on the yahoo website, here is the solution:

    To clear your history from Internet Explorer:

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Internet Options."

    3. Click the "General" tab.

    4. Click the "Clear History" button. To completely disable the history function, set "Days to keep pages in history" to zero.

    To turn off this feature:

    > Open an Internet Explorer page

    > Go to tools

    > Click on Internet options

    > Click the content tab

    > Then click the auto complete button, make sure you uncheck every thing in there.

    To clear your history from Mozilla Firefox:

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Options" > "Privacy" > "History."

    3. Click on "Clear." To completely disable the history function, set "Remember visited pages for the last X days" to zero ("0").

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    This will resolve it all :)

    ***********

    These steps are if you have Yahoo! Toolbar:

    If you want to remove all the entries in your search history right now, but you still want Yahoo! Toolbar to remember your searches in the future, do the following:

    1. Click the Pencil menu.

    2. Select "Clear Recent Searches".

    If you want to save your recent searches while you're searching on the Web, but automatically clear the saved searches when you close your browser window, do the following:

    1. Click the Pencil menu.

    2. Select "Toolbar Options".

    3. Select "Auto-clear recent searches when exiting IE" so there's a checkmark in the box next to it.

    4. Click "OK".

    If you want to disable the feature entirely so none of your searches are saved, do the following:

    1. Click the Pencil menu.

    2. Select "Toolbar Options".

    3. Click "Remember Recent Searches" so there's not a checkmark in the box next to it.

    4. Click "OK"

    :)

    Removal of items on your search bar

    On the right side of the bar before you get to the web search button click on the bar (you may have to click it a few times) will open a drop down box that will bring you at the front of items you searched for.

    Place your mouse pointer over the first item and you will see it highlight. Do not click the item just leave your mouse where it is and hit the delete button on your keyboard. The item will vanish and the next will take its place and become highlighted. Just keep hitting the delete button and watch them go away.

    This will work for any browser.

    You can delete the history of search bar on ur homepage (whatever it is either Yahoo! or Google) by following this path. Tools> internet options> content> auto complete> clear forms. To stop the generation of history uncheck the box of forms.

    You can delete the search history on ur yahoo toolbar this way. click the arrow in the search box. Select options, click clear history. Follow this path also. Pencil> toolbar options> uncheck the boxes of enable auto complete and enable history> ok.

    To delete address bar history, follow this path. Tools> internet options> general > clear history > set the number of days to zero> ok.
