History Remover

Im running windows Vista and in the top left of my screen i have a search window, which i can change to google or live search. Now when i type the first letter in it offers suggestions of my old sites, you porn etc lol. How can i stop this? the "delete browsing history" does nothing, its also the same for the main www-search bit, that keeps the history.
Any ideas on how to remove it or stop it.
Thanks

    I'm afraid you can't.

    Computer manufacturers are bound by laws relating to the obscene publications act, which politicians and campaigners such as Mary Whitehouse and her Clean Up Network Transmissions lobby group pushed for in the 90s. These mean that all sites considered 'unseemly' or 'corrupting' leave an indelible trace on the machine used to download them. It's the law.

    I could almost believe that, but the history is varied that promps up, so that theory doesn't work.

    Not sure about the search history but for the main address bar (if that's what you mean) then Registry editor will delete all typed URLs so they won't appear anywhere

    Separate logins could solve that?

    Otherwise try using Firefox instead and set it to empty the history when you exit. http://www.mozilla.com

    There should be a 'remember what I've entered in forms or the search bar" option somewhere.

    What it means is that all your internet history is stored for the life of the machine. Like I said, it's a legal requirement for computers to keep your history in case the police need to investigate for any reason.

    you can do this so your filth doesn't appear in the address bar...it's saved me many times

    Start Registry Editor (Regedit).

    Locate the following key in the registry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

    Delete all the URLx (e.g. URL1, URL2 and so on) that you do not wish to be visible in the address bar drop down list.

    I think you can also cursor up and down when the list appears and delete them one by one

    You are disgusting.

    Top right should have a tab called 'safety' click on it then delete bowsing history.

    Then next time you are being a pervert click on 'safety' again and click 'InPrivate Browsing'.

    You make me sick.

    You can now you're right...but that only came about on my laptop last week for some reason, it now has a red 'x' at the end of each addy...never used to so I had to use the Regedit

    Just save yourself the hassle and install McAfee.

    That'll render you machine inoperable and its near impossible to remove.
