I recently did a google search and when I entered one of the websites a prompt script
download appeared, worried about what it was doing I unplugged the computer and rebooted. I started up IE and when I entered the search menu under the history toolbar the internet shortcut "what I searched" - google search could not be deleted I even ran a history cleaner and yet it was the only thing that remained in the history toolbar under the search menu.
I was wondering if anyone could help me with this dilemma??

It doesn't work.
I've tried that cleaner and many others.
I was wondering if there's any other way besides using cleaners.

Go to Tools, Internet Options, Content, AutoComplete and clear from there.

When you go to google search you see it, correct?

If so use your arrow key to highlight it and press the delete key.
