    When surfing the net with windows xp is the browser internet explorer, do
    you clear the history of the sites you have visited by clicking
    tools>internet options>clear history the same as in win 98. Thank you for
    any help

    You could have tried that in less time than it took you to post this
    question.
    YES.

    That will not completely erradicate them from your PC but it will hide them
    from many novice users. If you are in fact trying to hide your tracks
    there are registry entries you need to delete the values of to really cover
    your tracks.

    Dave,
    Where in the registry are these hidden treasures stored?

    A utility such as "Spider" (freeware) can be used to clear the
    hidden URLs from history index.dat files.
