How do i get rid of recent searches. Do not want wife seeing what kinda Christmas presents i am searching for

When i search for "coach hand bags" in the search field it seems to save it so the next time a search starting wiht the letter "C" is enterd that search pops op below the field. For instance "C"hannel perfume. So i gotta pretend the computer is broken until you can tell me how to fix this so my wife can't sen her possible christmas presents.

    To prevent the names coming up in the search engine

    Go up to "Tools"

    Then "Internet Options"

    Then "Content"

    Then "Auto Complete"

    And make sure the settings are off for Auto Complete.

    Then you might as well clean your temp internet files.

    Tools

    Internet Options

    Settings

    View Files

    Then delete all the temp internet files.

    Hope that helped!

    To rid yourself of these searches and all of the porn ones as well,

    In Internet Explorer:

    Click on TOOLS > Internet Options

    On the General Tab:

    Click

    Delete Cookies

    Delete Cookies

    Delete Files > Then check the Delete all offline Content and press OK

    Then Right Click on the task bar ( the big grey one)

    Click Properties > Start menu > Customize

    Then click CLEAR (which removes a list of your recently accessed documents)

    Clearing the history would be the best way. Go to Internet Options, and click on clear history in general tab, then restart the browser.

    When the search list comes up again, just use the delete button to delete it. Use the up and down arrow to scroll down the list and press the delete button.

    Yesss! I found all the stupid crap my mother bought but I can't find any of the good stuff. I've looked everywhere so far and cannot find it anywhere. I'm begining to think she left it at someone else's house. I'm female and I'm 18
