    just bought a used 2nd mac. I want to delete previous searches from the previous owner for good; just in case he was looking up shady sites. This computer will be used at work and by the family and I want to make sure I dont get blamed for 'naughty' websites. how do you delete them for good?

    Didn't reinstall fresh OS on the system? If you have the disks, why don't you just do a fresh install of the OS...

    How about doing a Spotlight search for "safari history"
    Delete all the history items

    You can reset Safari
    And you can empty the cache

    But if you do a Spotlight search... you will still find history items
