Search history

Hello,

i have some questions about search history in windows vista :

1. i wonder if "Windows Search"(windows logo button + F) stores a
history of my previous done searches. Can you please tell me where does
"Windows Search" keep this history? If so, how can this be deleted?

2. what happend to "Search for people and computers" from windows XP,
is it not available in windows vista?

3. On Xp, i used to delete the following locations from registry :

This is for peoples, computers and Internet search assistent history:

Code:
--------------------

Software\\Microsoft\\Search Assistant\\ACMru\\
--------------------


This is for find files history :


Code:
--------------------
Software\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Explorer Bars\\{C4EE31F3-4768-11D2-BE5C-00A0C9A83DA1}\\ContainingTextMRU

Software\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Explorer Bars\\{C4EE31F3-4768-11D2-BE5C-00A0C9A83DA1}\\FilesNamedMRU
--------------------


The problem is, that i can't find the previous registry locations on
windows vista


Any help will be appreciated.

Mark.

In Vista, Windows searches are saved only on demand, when you click the
Save Search button. After you name a search, it is stored in the Searches
folder under your user name (C:\Users\%username%\Searches\). A saved
search can be deleted with the Delete key, like any other file.

Click the "Network & Internet" icon in Control Panel to see these two
options.
