My Computer in IE's History

I don't see the point of your document history appearing in IE's 'History', this is, after all, intended to reflect your web browsing history not documents you have recently viewed on your own computer. Does anyone know how this behaviour can be removed?

Right click My Computer in History, Delete.

True, that's one possibility but I'd like to remove the behaviour permanently so My Documents history never appears in IEs History. Thanks.

it can be removed in the way you wish...

It stems from the fact that when you look at My Computer/My Documents you are, in fact using "Windows Explorer", albeit with a specif view...

"Windows Explorer" and "Internet Explorer" are, in fact, the same programme; when yu use "Windows Explorer" you are using "Internet Explorer", so it appears in the history.

As usual, I'm open to correction!!
