This works if you have Internet Explorer as your browser.
The record of search history which appears in the search box on Yahoo and Google pages is actually a feature controlled by your browser.

* At the top of your screen click Tools, Internet Options, Content tab, under Personal information, click the AutoComplete box, on the AutoComplete Settings window click the Clear Forms box to delete your current history, or you can uncheck the Forms box to permanently stop the generation of the search history, click OK.

Another option that works with any browser:
* Here is another way if you just want to clear the searches (and don't want to stop the generation of the search history) from the search box menu on Yahoo or Google pages, double click the search box, this will make a menu drop down with your searches, put your cursor on what you want to delete to highlight it, and hit the delete button on your keyboard. If you want to delete everything just hold the delete button down until everything is deleted.

* To clear searches on Yahoo Toolbar, click the pencil icon beside the search box, click Clear Recent Searches. If you want to stop saving recent searches, click Toolbar Options and uncheck "Enable Search History", or check "Auto-clear Search History when quitting IE" to clear history when you close your Internet connection.

* To clear searches on Google toolbar, click "Google" on the left of the search box, click Clear Search History. To stop saving searches click options, click search tab and check or uncheck to configure your search box.

* To clear history of sites you have visited on Internet Explorer 6 address bar, click Tools, Internet Options, under General tab click Clear History, you can also set the number of days to keep pages in history, click Apply and then click OK. You may also want to click the Content tab and click Auto Complete and check or uncheck your Auto Complete settings to your preference.

* To clear history of sites you have visited on Internet Explorer 7, go to Tools, Internet Options, General tab, under Browsing history you have the option to delete everything all at once with just one click, click Delete, a menu will pop up, click Delete all to clear everything, or choose what you want to delete, to stop saving history, under Browsing history click Settings and under History set Days to keep pages in history to 0, click OK.

Remove toolbars from dropdown menu


Clear the Dropdown Address Bar For security and privacy's sake, you might want to clear the drop-down address bar in your Firefox browser. You can do so in just a few steps. Note that these entries will not be retrievable after they're deleted.
Launch Firefox browser and click your cursor inside the address bar. Begin to type in the address that you wish to delete, but do not press "Enter" or click "Go." You will see the drop-down list auto-populate. Using the up or down keys on your keyboard, scroll down to the item you wish to remove from the listing. Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove it permanently. Your browser will now be free of specific items that you wish to remove. Remove Unwanted Toolbars Permanently Web toolbars are add-on programs that enhance functionality of your browser. Usually they improve your online searches, offer quick access buttons to favorite websites and some provide pop-up blockers. However, there are spyware programs that only pose as toolbars. Yet other toolbars, although not harmful, install themselves without your consent. You can easily remove these unwanted toolbars permanently from your PC.

Go to the "Start" menu and click "Control Panel." Click "Uninstall a program" under the Programs area. Scroll through the list of currently installed programs, select the toolbar that you want to remove and click "Uninstall." Follow the step-by-step prompts to uninstall the toolbar. Restart your computer when prompted at the end of the removal. b> Firefox Launch Mozilla Firefox, click the "Tools" drop-down menu, select "Add-ons" and click "Extensions." Click the toolbar you want to remove in the new window. Click the "Uninstall" button. Restart the browser.
Clear the Drop Down Menu in Mozilla Firefox b> Firefox's "autocomplete" feature helps speed up your Web browsing experience. Whenever you type in the browser's location bar, a drop-down menu appears. This menu may contain a mixture of previously visited websites and entries from your bookmarks collection. Although this feature makes it easier to revisit old sites, you may want to clear this drop-down menu when it becomes too large. Clearing the menu can reduce its and prevent others from viewing your browsing history if you share the computer.

Launch Firefox and click "Tools" to display a drop-down menu. Click the "Clear Recent History" option to view the "Clear Recent History" pop-up window. Click "Details." A list of options appears. Remove the check marks from all options, and place a check mark next to "Browsing & Download History." Click "Clear Now." b> Clear Bookmarks Click the "Tools" button again, and then click "Options" to display the "Options" window. Click "Privacy" and find the "Location Bar" section near the bottom of the window. Click the drop-down box in that section and click "Nothing." Click "OK."
