IE v 6.0 - Hiding history and searches

IE v 6.0 - Hiding history and searches

I know that you can prevent the address bar of IE 6.0 from storing details of previous addresses accessed by going to Tools>Internet Options and inserting '0' in 'Days to keep pages in history'of the 'History; section of the dialog box.

However, I have a friend who wants to prevent the address bar from displaying any details of previous addresses accessed, even those accessed on the same day?  Is the only way to do this to create a separate user ares for my friend which is password protected?  She does not want her son to see the sites she has accessed.

As a separate point, some sites such as www.google.com have a search criteria entry box which will also display the history of previous searches eg typing in 'med' might display previous searches such as 'medical' and 'Mediterranean'.  Is there a way to prevent details of these previous searches being displayed, even searches made on the same day?
