Every time I google on something, a drop-down list appears under the Google search box showing everything I've ever visited in the past. This search box history feature is a nuisanace. Not only that, but if a computer is shared, someone else can see what has been visited.

When I posted earlier today, I got the Google Search Box confused with the IE address bar. I edit to read Google search box. Apologies.

Thanks for any info.
