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
