When I try to clear the normal way via Explorer, the app locks up and the CPU pegs at 100% usage until I ctrl+alt+del and kill the application. I tried downloading a history freeware app (Tracks Eraser), but that also freezes up upon attempting to clear the IE forms cache. (In fact, that app froze up so thoroughly that I had to do a hard reboot.)
I tried going to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\HISTORY to delete the index.bat file, but there is no index.bat file there. The machine runs WinXP Pro SP1, and I have admin rights.
Maybe there's some sort of enterprise app blocking me, but I don't recall having problems in the past. I know that at one time there was a bug in IE that made this happen, and I was able to find a back door fix, but not so today. HELP!
Thanks in advance,
