    Every time I go on yahoo answers and look up something all my questions pop up. How do I get rid of them? I already went to "history" and clicked "clear history" but it still stays on yahoo answers.

    Have you signed into a yahoo account with your email address and are you still signed in?

    Its just a thought!?! I would imagine its possible that the searches are being linked with your Yahoo account. Have you tried without?
