    google question

    often, i will go to google.com and type in whatever it is that i'm searching for...for some reason, i am still able to see many of items i searched for several months ago, whenever i type in a new search...for example, today i was typing in something that started with the letter "s"...i couldn't remember the spelling, so i paused for a minute...much to my surprise, about 25 google searches from over six months ago appear on a dropdown menu...i know some are over six months ago, because one of the words, was a doctor's name i was looking up for my father back in september '04. i don't understand how these can still be lingering on in my system...i would like to make them disappear, but can't figure it out. i have something called "no trace" that i've used before, but even that didn't work. anyone have any suggestions?

    Ummmmm.....what don't you want people to know you've been searching for?

    Best advice. Clear your internet history. That's all I got. Hope that helps.

    That too. But if you do that and you have a lot of sites remembering info. (passwords etc. .), it'll wipe that out.

    Do you use the Google toolbar?

    If so, try this: click Google - Option - the "more" tab - and check or uncheck the search options at the top.

    Cleaning out your History/ Temp and Cookie folders will not elimibate your search/address bar entries. There is numerous software (some free) that will accomplish this.

    Just off the top of my head, CleanSpace8 is one of them. I have it, and it works great at numerous other tasks also.
