Hello schmir1,

If you want to delete one or two entries, highlight the entry and hit the Delete key.

If you want to delete all entries, go to Tools > Internet Options > Content > Autocomplete.  Delete all form entries from there.

Hope this helps!

schmir1--There could be a difference deleting the search history from Yahoo and Google homepages compared to deleting the history from the respective Toolbars.  (The former is stored on your PC.  The latter is stored by Yahoo and Google.)
Here is the procedure for Yahoo Toolbar.

and for Google Toolbar
