Useful Info from (c) Microsoft:
Delete webpage history
As you browse the web, Internet Explorer stores information about the websites you visit, as well as information that websites frequently ask you to provide (such as your name and address). Internet Explorer stores the following types of information:
* Temporary Internet files
* A history of the websites you've visited
Information that you've entered into websites or the Address bar
* Saved web passwords
Usually, it's helpful to have this information stored on your computer—it can improve your web browsing speed and also save you from having to type the same information over and over. But you might want to delete that information if, for example, you're using a public computer and don't want any of your personal information to be left behind.
To delete all or some of your browsing history Click to open Internet Explorer.
Click the Safety button, and then click Delete Browsing History.
Select the check box next to each category of information you want to delete.
Select the Preserve Favorites website data check box if you do not want to delete the cookies and files associated with websites in your Favorites list.
Click Delete. (This could take awhile if you have a lot of files and history.)
You should close Internet Explorer when you're done to clear cookies that are still in memory from your current browsing session. This is especially important when using a public computer.
Deleting your browsing history does not delete your list of favorites or subscribed feeds.
You can use Internet Explorer's InPrivate Browsing feature to avoid leaving a history as you browse the web. For more information, see What is InPrivate Browsing?
You can delete all settings that have changed since Internet Explorer was first installed, including browsing history. For more information, see Reset Internet Explorer settings.
