    try these tips

    Google Search Field
    ----------------------


    If you are using Internet Explorer 6, click "Tools", select "Internet
    Options", click "Content" tab, push "AutoComplete", and uncheck
    "Forms". To clear previous searches, push "Clear Forms". You can also
    delete search queries one by one: empty the Google Search Field and
    double-click on it to see the earlier search queries, and delete
    individual searches by moving the mouse cursor (or use Down arrow key)
    over one of the search queries and press Delete key on keyboard.

    If you have Mozilla Firebird 0.x or Mozilla Firefox 0.x/1.x, click
    "Tools", select "Options", click "Privacy", click "+" next to "Saved
    Form Information", and uncheck "Save information I enter in web page
    forms and the Search Bar". To clear previous searches, push "Clear"
    next to "Saved Form Information".


    If you're using Safari on a Macintosh: In the "Safari" menu, choose
    "Preferences..." and click on the "AutoFill" tab. Uncheck the "Other
    Forms" box to stop all autofilling. If you do want to keep
    autofilling forms on certain web sites, click the "Edit" button and
    add those sites to the list.


    In the Mac version of Firefox, go to the "Firefox" menu, and choose
    "Preferences", then "Privacy", then "Saved Form Information".

    2) Google Toolbar
    -----------------


    Click the Google logo in the Google Toolbar and then click "Clear
    Search History". If you don't want Google Toolbar to save searches,
    click the Google logo in the Google Toolbar, click "Options", click
    "More" tab, uncheck "Save the search history across browser sessions".

    3) Google Deskbar
    -----------------


    Click the small down arrow next to the "Google Deskbar" icon, and
    select "Clear AutoComplete History".

    .....................or just use CCleaner to get them all at once....including the recycle bin and all cookies (if you like that option)

    once you set all the options, you can set CCleaner to run at boot, or manually run it yourself to watch the fun of the junk go into electronic hades
