How can I successfully erase my history of where I've been online?

Isn't there two different ways to do this? (besides going to my tools?)

I think there's another way to do this as well, right?

    USE THIS PROGRAM ALL OTHERS ARE EITHER NOT EFFICIENT OR ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SPYWARE.

    http://www.atribune.org/content/view/19/2/

    Download ATF-Cleaner from this website, it is the most efficient way of erasing history, cookies, temporary internet files and much more. Also it frees up bytes of space that are taken by cookies (history) so if your trying to hide something up, you can tell the person you are hiding your history from that that program is only for making the computer run faster and your not trying to cover your tracks. Once you download this program, open it and select the browser you use for your... lets say porn... and check the box that says "Select all" erase everything there, then click on the main tab at the top and check the box "Select All" and clear everything from there. If you use Internet Explorer you only have to erase everything from "Main". Hope this helps.

    Source(s): P.S. if you find that your history is not erased, open back up the program and select all again, and click "Empty Selected" a couple more times.

    It depends. What browser are you using? IE? Tools->internet options->delete files and tools->internet options->clear history.

    well depends what internet browser you have... you can delete your TEMP file (i think that does it) click the start button and click run and rype in "%temp%" without quotes... or you can (if your using firefox) click history and click open in sidebar and right click and click delete... if your using internet explorer then i think you click tools and then click options and there should be somewhere on there that says delete history or you can do that by going into your control panel and clicking internet options

    matters how your system is setup if your system is in a network or has monitoring programs or security programs you cant be 100% sure in clearing history. but here is a small guide to clearing history

    1: tools- clear history- clear autocomplete- clear passwords etc...-clear cookies- internetoptions and view files select all delete

    2: clear all windows temp folders and c:/temp

    3: system cleanup

    and if all else fails use a proxy site (i dont have one off hand).

    You could use a third-party software such as Window Washer from Webroot. I've used it before and it found a few things that I didn't know about. It also optimizes your PC.

    do a search for a program called crap cleaner and down load it. It's freeware and like Spybot the guy is only asking for donations. It removes all trace of your online activities.
