Chances are, your computer automatically keeps a record of your history, including your Google search history. You may want to delete your Google search history because you searched for a topic you don't want other people to view, or to improve your computer's performance by getting rid of unnecessary information stored on the hard drive. In Windows Vista, you can remove your Google search history along with other browsing-related files, or delete only your Google search history.
