I've got an adult site that I need to delete from my Media Player file that shows up all the time when it shows the recently visited sites. How do I delete these files?

Open windows media player, then from the tool bar choose TOOLS > OPTIONS > PRIVACY TAB, choose CLEAR HISTORY Button

Another way is to do it from regedit and delete only that particular file. This wont clear all the files and hence wont arouse any suspicion. :tazz:

Open regedit.
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\RecentFileList
On the right frame, U will have string variables ranging from File0 to Filen (where (n+1) is the max. no. of files in the list).
Delete which-ever particular file u want.
But, u have now broken the sequence. U will have to rename the last variable to the one which u deleted.

e.g.: I have varibales ranging from File0 to File8. If I delete File5, I have broken the sequence of numbers (i.e. 0 to 8). Now I will have to rename File8 to File5.
