hello members,
I want to remove all the website names that i recently visited in IE..
how can i do that..?
i tried removing entire history also all cookies.. but its of no use..
when i type a part of the site names.. entire sitename will appear.. below the
address bar..
Can anyone solve this..?

Did you clear the history properly? I mean it should all be erased when you do that. Try doing that again and see ?

In regedit, goto:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

And in right-side pane, u can delete the URLs u want :D

@Nithinks, There is an option called 'Clear History' in IE. That will do the job for you.


Yes clear history will be enough. Also set the "Number of days to keep pages in History" to 1, just in case you forget to clear everyday.
Also, IE is not exactly the best browser to use to visit "sites." :p


mera kutch nahi ho sakta
Just use Opera. You can remove all history/private settings with one click.
and then forget all hostory-cleaneres/cclean.

and to visit certain 'sites', try Opera portable - This will automatically wipe every setting, when you close the browser, so not trace of your surfing will be left behind.

ccleaner is freeware and fast and effective.
others i rate high are ace utilities, tune-up, system mechanic, anti-tracks.
