Hi,
My company has created a product that could solve this problem. Our software, ControlHistory allows you to selectively or completely delete your history. You can download it from
www.controlhistory.com. It supports
IE (ver. 6+)
Firefox (ver. 3+)
Chrome (ver. 1+)
Google Desktop Search
Many programs like MS Word, Excel, Acrobat Reader, WinRAR, 7-Zip, etc. that save their history in the Registry.

You can use the software for free to view your history but to be able to delete it you need a license. The cost of a license is USD 0.99 (99 cents).

Want to delete search history


Which web browser do you use? In Firefox, click the icon that looks like a clock and then click "Clear recent history..." Scroll down and select "Everything" and then click "Clear Now." If you use another browser, look through the Options or Settings for similar wording.

Another option - if you use Windows or a Mac - is to use CCleaner. It's free and available at http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner - Do not click the Buy Now button. Click Download Now to get the free version. Once it's downloaded and installed, open the program. Select the Cleaner option on the left (brush icon) and you'll see a lot of check boxes. If you have Internet Explorer, check Temporary Internet Files and History. If you use another browser, click the Application tab, find your browser and check Internet Cache and Internet History (Chrome and Firefox options). If you want to see what's available to be deleted, click Analyze (at the bottom). If you just want to delete without checking, click Run Cleaner.

Stopping browsing history


Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing." Private browsing must be activated each time you open your browser.
