Hi,can anyone tell me why the 'MY COMPUTER' file always turns up in the HISTORY folder?I thought only web sites should appear here.

I think it's because of the close ties between windows explorer / the operating system and internet explorer.

It seems to be more of a problem with IE7 than in the past.

IE records all the History of files opened - both Webpages and documents on pc harddrive.
Doesn't seem as if there is anyway to stop it. (tech-archive.net) click here

As you likely know, it's not an issue if you use an alternative browser; I use FireFox and find it helpful to be able to browse "My Computer" history via IE when I am trying to locate a file that I used.
