IE is saving the search strings I type in Input fields. if I go to google to search for food, when I type "Fo" I get a dropdown list from IE, saying "Fool", "Footware" ect.

How can I:
1) Delete the list
2) Turn off the IE feature, So its not showing the list

john, clear history will clear his address bar cached addresses, but will not clear forms.  win32 was referring to google form searches.
