Browser searches or in house searches? Netscape, IExplorer, FireFox...etc.?

If a browser issue [I use NetScape] ...usually, all have a preference set up that commands a "clean up" on exit...check that out.

There are tons of 3rd party progs that will clean up stuff on exit from browsers...

As an extra added measure, I always visit the Temp folders in Doc's/Settngs and clean them out manually, if I have to, before shut down.

CRAP CLEANER> [free] is suggested by many in this forum...
Mil Incorporated> is very good...but not free beyond the trial...good enough for temp solutions though, as are many others...

If in house...from what I have found on a google search, there is no way... "delete search cache" was the key phrase used...

How are these searches being saved...and how are they annoying you...maybe there is a work around ???

I think I remember a window asking me if I wanted to save the search history.
Here is the problem:

Looks to me like a browser issue...

I use Netscape...all relevant files are saved to the Documents and Settings> [your user name]>Local Settings>Temp> I suppose IExplore saves temp files there as well...

Check this out to see if any files, found there, sound like they may be relevant to you, and then delete them...

If a file does not delete, just leave it... If it is necessary to delete all files, download a wee bit of software to unlock them and then delete the files on reboot...but most likly they'll disappear naturally, anyway at that point.

IE has a delete function...

1. open IExplorer
2. Tools
3. Internet Options
4. General...
