I can't delete some addresses from IE address bar. Sometimes there are lots of address and when I try to delete using Internet Options....delete History, cookies, temp internet files...they are still there. Most get deleted but some won't disappear.
I tried editing the registry....found a thread where you navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Typed URLs
but there is nothing listed under "typed URL" but a defaut icon.

please help....I'm not real computer literate

are we walking history, or autocomplete (probably the latter)

Close IE

Go to control panel > internet options

On GENERAL tab, click CLEAR HISTORY Button

On CONTENT tab, go to AUTOCOMPLETE, uncheck web addresses and press CLEAR FORMS button


And stop surfing websites you don't want your wife/girlfriend/mom to know about....
