    How do I delete the drop-down list of my past searches?

    You can clear your Google search history from the Google search box, the Google Toolbar, or your browser. We've included instructions for all three methods below.

    CLEARING YOUR GOOGLE SEARCH BOX HISTORY

    The search history that displays in the search box on the Google homepage is stored by your browser, not by Google. Instructions appear below for disabling this search history in common browsers. If your browser isn't listed, we suggest consulting its online support center.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Internet Options" and the "Content" tab.

    3. Within the "Personal information" area, select "AutoComplete."

    4. Click on "Clear Forms." You can also un-check the "Forms" box in this window to keep this information from being stored in the future.

    5. Click "OK" to exit.

    Alternatively, you can delete individual entries from your search history by using the Down arrow key to highlight a previous search, then pressing the Delete key once.

    MSN

    If you're using the Microsoft Network (MSN), changes made in Internet Explorer (IE) will take effect in your MSN browser. After making changes in IE, you'll need to sign out of and back into MSN for the changes to take effect.

    Mozilla Firefox

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Options" > "Privacy" > "Saved Form Information."

    3. Click "Clear" and un-check the box.

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    Safari

    1. Go to the "Safari" menu and select "Preferences."

    2. From the menus that pop up, select "Autofill."

    3. Go to "Other forms" line and select the "Edit" button.

    4. From the list of sites for which AutoFill is currently being applied, select "Google.com" > "Remove" > "Done."

    CLEARING YOUR GOOGLE TOOLBAR HISTORY

    To clear your search history from the drop-down text box on the Google Toolbar:

    1. Click on the Google logo on the Toolbar to access the drop-down menu.

    2. Select the "Clear Search History" option.

    If you'd like to completely disable your Toolbar's search history, please click the "Options" button on your Toolbar and un-check the box next to "Drop-down search history."

    If you have Google Toolbar 4.0 installed, you can clear your Toolbar's search history by starting to enter a search term in your Toolbar's search box. When your drop-down search history appears, simply click the "Clear History" link.

    Please note that this only clears the search history from the Google Toolbar, which is entirely separate from the search history stored by your browser.

    If you've followed these steps and information still appears in your Toolbar search box as you type, please visit http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer... for additional assistance.

    CLEARING YOUR BROWSER HISTORY

    Like your Google search box history, the search history that displays in the address bar on the Google homepage is stored by your browser, not by Google. Instructions appear below for clearing and/or disabling your search history in common browsers. If your browser isn't listed, we suggest consulting its online support center.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer

    1. Go to the "Tools" menu.

    2. Select "Internet Options" and the "General" tab.

    3. Click the "Clear History" button. To completely disable the history function, set "Days to keep pages in history" to zero ("0").

    4. Click "OK" to exit.

    MSN

    If you're using the Microsoft Network (MSN), changes made in Internet Explorer (IE) will take effect in your MSN browser. After making changes in IE, you'll need to sign out of and back into MSN for the changes to take effect.

    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.

    Safari

    1. Click "History" on the top menu.

    2. Click "Clear History" at the bottom of the menu.

    To delete searches from the Google toolbar go to the Google toolbar, right click and then click on 'clear search history'.

    If you want to delete your searches from the actual Google site - sign into Google, click on 'search history', then you'll see a list. Make sure everything is ticked and then click on 'remove items', then you can tick the searches you wish to remove, or you can click 'clear entire search history'.

    You can also click on 'pause' so it won't save your searches until you want it to again.

    Hope this helps.

    go to START then to SETTINGS then to CONTROL PANEL then to INTERNET OPTIONS then to CONTENT then to AUTO COMPLETE then choose your settings and delete forms and passwords, if you have a Google toolbar at the top of your screen you can click on Google and on the drop down window clear search history. Also delete history, files and cookies in INTERNET OPTIONS (above) frequently if you don't want people seeing what you are up to, also go to system cleanup toget rid of a good portion of unwanted temp files, those can be found easily by any snooping party.

    U 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.

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

    U can delete the search history on ur yahoo toolbar this way. click the arrow in the search box. Select options, click clear history.

    For firefox

    tools>>options>>privacy>>clear history+. savedforms

    It will solve ur all search related problems.
