    How do I stop Google from giving me a drop down list of searches that
    begin with the same letters of my current search, i.e., I type CO and
    it drops down 5 previous searches that started with CO

    Just like Unk said to do... and then stop surfing for porn and you will not
    worry anymore about getting caught.

    In case you are searching using the Google Toolbar, click on Options
    and un-check "drop-down search history".

    How To Disable Query Suggestions

    Go to Google home page. Click on the small Preferences link just to the right of the search box. Scroll down to "Query Suggestions". Select "Do not provide query suggestions in the search box."

    This is the correct solution. The weakness, obviously, is that every time you delete your cookies, you'll have to reset this. Preferences are saved in a cookie.
