Clearing Search History

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Yeah, like..When you click 'Start', and the white and blue menu pops up,
there's a 'Search' button in the blue. Also, when you search for
something, it saves what you searched for. Is there anyway to clear
that?

    Zeru,

    For Windows XP Search Companion (file search):

    Click Start/Run and type REGEDIT
    Navigate to the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Search Assistant \ ACMru \ 5603
    In the right-pane, delete the search items
    Close Registry Editor

    For Windows Classic Search, the entries are stored in the following registry
    key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Explorer Bars
    \ {C4EE31F3-4768-11D2-BE5C-00A0C9A83DA1} \ FilesNamedMRU
