Very simple. In the search field, press the down arrow key. You will see all the inquiries, move the mouse cursor over it and hit the delete key.

Just disable the AutoComplete for Forms:

Tools -> Internet Options -> Content tab -> AutoComplete button:

Uncheck "Forms"
Uncheck "User names and passwords on forms"
Hit "Clear Forms"
Hit "Clear Passwords"
OK

But you will lose everything that way. I like the AutoComplete feature.
