Now when ever I enter the first letter of the search term that I shouldn't have entered, it displays every search that I have done that starts with that letter including the one I wish it would forget. I have erased my cookies, and all offline content. Still if I enter "P" (no it wasn't followed by "ussy" or like that) google still pops up a list of searches with the unwanted term right at the top.
This doesn't happen on my 3 home comps, all running XP but using Sea Monkey or Firefox. Must be an IE thing? Leads me to think that that Google history is associated directly with that particular laptop? If so there must be a way to eliminate the history.
