If you're using Internet Explorer go to "Tools" menu, then "Internet Options". Click on the "Delete Files" button (or if you're using IE6.0 the "Delete Cookies" button) and that should clear the cookies from Google.

You may also want to turn off the "Inline Auto-Complete" feature as well. That feature causes IE to remember stuff that you type into those search boxes so the next time you go to that particular page it remembers what you entered in when you start typing it again. I don't remember where that option is located in the preferences though.
