Default Type In Words - Subtext Appears

Whenever I type in words into blocks (rectangle answer blocks) I get a subtext below it. For example, if I go to Google and type in the letter "L" I get a host of previous "L" words I have typed in before like, "Love", "Lindsay Lohan"....etc. This is actually a nice feature yet it can compromise my privacy as I am not the only person that uses this computer.

How do i erase and turn this feature off?

What browser are you using? If you share a computer, and you're looking up porno and don't want to get caught, I suggest you use a different browser than the one everyone else who uses the computer uses. That way its not in history, AutoComplete, etc.

But to turn AutoComplete off if you are using Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Content -> AutoComplete... and then uncheck "Forms" ... that will turn off the AutoComplete on things like Google search, uncheck them all if you want it all off.
