Why do you double click, you only have to type what you are looking for and hit enter key or press search

Go to IE /Tools/Internet Options/Content tab/ Autocomplete button and then click the "Clear Forms" button. Close IE then reopen it.

It works on my version of Google.

Where on the search bar are you double clicking?

  MAJ 11:21 07 Feb 2003

Doesn't work on mine either, €dstow???? Weird !!!

Do you mean you don't get a dropdown menu when you click on the multicoloured Google on the Google task bar?

try this - type a letter in text box this should bring up previous entries that you've typed in before, scroll over the ones you want to remove to higlight them and hit delete
hope it works march
