    Clear Search History (1)

    I am trying to clear "Search" history from MSN home page and/or Google search. I am not talking about browser history, I can clear that just fine. When I click on the empty search bar, all past search words scroll
    down. I have tried all of the browser clearing procedures and several other procedures such as modifying "autocomplete" features and "registry editor settings(HKEY_CURRENT_USERSOFTWAREMicrosoft
    Search AssistantACMru5603, the search words do not show up there by the way,I have tried other suggestions as well with no luck. This problem only applies to Search history, not browser history Can someone PLEASE tell me how to solve this very annoying problem ?
    Thanks

    For Google, it depends on whether you mean the google.com page or the Google toolbar. See How do I delete the drop-down list of my past searches?.

    For MSN, see Web Search Help: Clear your search history.

    Thanks for the reply, I tried all of the procedures listed on the two pages you sent me, unfortunately the search history is still there on the search bar. One of the things suggested was to "click on the MSN logo on the toolbar, and then click Clear Search" well I did click on the MSN logo but saw nothing about "Clear Search History". I rechecked the "AutoComplete settings as suggested. I even removed the MSN search bar
    program at the "add and remove programs" function. That really screwed my up my internet connection until I ran a repair program and restarted the computer. However the MSN search bar program is gone.
    but the search bar and history are still there. I am almost to the point of calling the MSN help line, but I fear it might be a LONG waste of time. If you have any further suggestions please let me know. This thing is driving me crazy, Thanks again,
