How else do I remove saved web addresses from my browser?

Question

Attn: Cynthia or someone who knows IE 5.5 / Win 98

Re: Question

I am using Internet Explorer 5.5 with Windows 98 How do I delete these files? Where are they hiding? I've tried everything!!!!!!!

Q: How do I delete visited web addresses off my computer after deleting temporary internet fliles and /history files doesn't work. I have cleared all history, temp internet files, autocomplete files, cookies, searched the registry for the web addresses etc and still these unwanted addresses appear on my address bar when I begin entering an address. All the other addresses are cleared but I have a few that just won't. What can I do to delete them? I have read through your list of questions but the answer is usually to clear history and temp internet files. That still isn't working. I do have a file on my cookies folder which is a system file called "index.dat" does that have anything to do with my problem. Help !!!

A: hi, i think you are using the netscape, i guessed so, if so, go to the "edit" menu, then go to the "preference" then you will see at the bottom of the window, it says "location bar history" then you click the "clear location bar history" then you will find nothing still in your dropdown menu and location bar. if you use explorer, try to explore out some of the same feature on their menu bar, i am sure they have similiar features listed some where.

good luck!
