Unable To Delete IE8 History

  babybell 14:59 04 Jun 2009

I have a strange problem with the history in IE8. When I click the down arrow on the address bar it shows the websites i've visited, then a line followed by my history then a line and my favourites. I ran CCleaner and when i reopened IE8, the sites had gone but history was still there. I then tried cleaning through IE8 Internet settings, ticked all the boxes and ran cleanup, but my history is STILL there! I don't want to have to click the red X next to each line individually as it will take forever! Anyone know whats wrong?

I've just clicked the red x's next to the history lines shown (about 5 of them) and they went. Click the drop down arrow again and the history is refreshed with the exact same sites/pages. So it seems that the history in there at the moment wont clear at all?

Did you actually tick the Internet History option in CCleaner?

Yes, I have all boxes ticked bar the options right near the end. Even the cleaner within IE8 isn't removing the items. Its bizarre.

Update CCleaner from within the program - see Check for Updates on bottom bar

Am I right in thinking that the CCleaner question was directed at me, or has my post been hijacked?

In either case I am running the very latest CCleaner and it will still not clear my history.
