    Looks like someone didnt read the entire post hey Ephon.! Maybe read the bit where it says “Update: For Windows 7 Home Editions,there is no Local Group Policy Editor,so please follow below steps to tweak your registry to disable the search history.”

    I have Windows 7 Home, and followed the Regedit steps. It works, until I reboot. The WordWheelQuery entry is restored after a reboot. Is there any way to delete this forever, so it will not come back?

    Make a key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Run\ClearWindowsSearchHistory

    And put the following value in the key..
    reg delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WordWheelQuery /f

    This should delete the key on each startup.

    Or you can empty WordWheelQuery and change the permission to allow no one to edit it.

    or try this…
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Search\PrimaryProperties\IndexedLocations]
    “SearchOnly”=dword:00000000
