How do I clear Cookies and Cache?

Question

Well I'm not sure how to fix this problem but I found innappropriate things on my computer when I returned home and I don't know how to delete these items. I am specifically concerned with the search options in the drop down box that appear once you begin to type in the search engine boxes-not the web browser.

Let me know if you know how to fix this, I haven't figured it out yet.

Thanks
