Explorer?

By theword ·
Hi.
How do I clear the "search" data base. The icon on top called "search". Well, when I go there to search the web, I start typing and a list pops up. How do I get rid of that list, cause I tried clearing the history, but that doesnt do it.
Thanks.....................Pat

Explorer?

If I remember right, you have to find the file called either index.dat or history.dat (or is it history.ie5?) that IE uses for your profile. In this complied file is the text box history that IE uses.

I can't remember where the file is.
Either way, the easier way to delete entries from the Search text box (especially entries that you Searched for that you don't want anyone else to know you were looking for!!!), just highlight them, then press the Delete key on the keyboard. That gets rid ofthem.
