    If your using IE 6

    Click tools at the top of the browser

    Internet options

    You will see clear history right under clear cookies etc.

    In IE 7

    Click tools in the upper right hand corner of the browser

    Internet options

    Browsing history

    Click Delete ALL

    this will delete everything in one motion

    Close your browser and open a new one. If you keep the existing browser open then the history will remain until you close it.

    Above click Tools, Internet Options and go 2/3 of way down and click Clear History.

    Apart from previous answers, click on the gold star at the top left of your new IE window and see History by the week or day. Click on each and delete. Incidentally, history does not 'delete' properly until the computer closes down.

    I'm in IE7 - I go to Tools (mine is on the left of the screen), "Delete Browsing History" - this gives you the options to delete, files, passwords, cookies, history. Select "History" & it deletes it.

    if the internet options-delete history doesn't work try this:

    start button



    system tools

    disk clean up

    then check whatever you want to be "cleaned" including the "history"

    Download something like Window Washer that will clear out a lot of crap on your system you don't want. You can choose want you want and don't want too.
