Default turning off google dropdown history

sorry if this is in the wrong spot i didnt know where else to put it, how do you get google to stop showing previous searches? its turned off in the google toolbar so it doesn't show it on the toolbar but on the actual website itself it still shows it, also i dont have a google account so that has nothing to do with it any help greatly appreciated thanks

Just get the google toolbar, click the drop down arrow to the right of the search box on the tool bar and its right on the bottom of that, Says "Clear Search History".
