Identify the asearchhistory.xml file and delete it. The XML will reside in your X1 index/data directory found by opening X1 and clicking: 


1. Tools > Options

Then, using Windows Explorer, navigate to the index/data folder and delete the searchhistory.xml file. By default, the file is located here (yours may be in a different location):


Windows XP Users

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\X1 Desktop Search

Please Note: If you do not see the Local Settings folder, then from Windows Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options > View and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is selected.


Windows Vista/Win7 Users

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\X1 Desktop Search 

Please Note: If you do not see the AppData folder, then from Windows Explorer, press the ALT key and click on Tools > Folder Options > View and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is selected.
