Deleting History And Zone Map in Registry

  User-C5CE72DE-020B-4DD8-A95855D47F731F00 17:43 02 Aug 2005

How does one delete the internet 'History' setting and the zone map in HKEY USERS please. I have XP. I've tried turning off the system restore function before deleting but the information returns. I've also tried CCleaner and Clean Up! but neither seem to work on this historical information.

Many thanks.

Control panel > Internet options > History - Delete. Then select Settings > Temporary Internet files and when you see them listed > Select All -and delete.

If you are using Aol, this will keep a list of site addresses visited, which can be deleted by finding and opening "Organize" and deleteing all files with a subscript other than "screenname.abi". In fact you may have to delete .abi as well if it isn't completely blank.

Thanks Diemmess. Clean Up! can do that, but it won't clean the regisrty history in 'History' and 'Zone map'.
