I've visited some sites that I'd rather my partner wasnt aware of - I've deleted from history, deleted the google toolbar but concerned about this 'most visited sites' thing. She has a google account so i'm presuming if she signs in to that and clicks on 'most visted' up will come my emabarrasment - is this true and if so anything i can do about it? I dont have a google account by the way.

You could try.Internet options.Content.Settings.And untick browsing History Apply Ok and see if that works.

Or maybe Internet Options.1st Settings.Just Dot never.Ok and see if that helps.

yep done that but no joy. I created a google account earlier today and when I sign in and click on web history it still displays what i've browsed today!

Sorry but not sure how it works.
I would imagine if your partner has the Google account I cannot see how he or she can access your visited sites on that,
If you use different user accounts there should be no problem.
I am sure someone will be able to give you the proper advice that you need.

Or Chrome and use the incognito feature (doesn't help with sites you've already been to. Wonder if CCleaner would remove those?)

If you can't fix it the above ways, you could just
choose a few random sites and visit them several times daily to try and knock the embarassing one off the list!
