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).

How do i view my browser history


Close, I will provide you with a couple of answers:
1. In Internet Explorer, click on favorites and you will see a tab for history; this will be your browsing history.
2. In AOL, click on View, then History; This option opens the History side panel, which displays your browsing history and provides the number of times you visited the site (in parenthesis) as well as a thumbnail view of the Web page. Clicking Clear My Footprints at the bottom of the History Side Panel clears your browsing history, blocked pop-up list, and all thumbnails.
3. Google Chrome: There is a wrench looking thing in the upper right corner, click it and then on History, this will bring up your entire history.

Every time I download a video it stops every few seconds


The cause of your problem is simple: your "cache"
memory & "temporary internet files" are nearly full.
This is especially true if you've been watching lots
of videos or playing a lot of games/music.

If you are experiencing either: A) slugglish loading
and buffering, B) "choppy" videos which frequently
start/stop/start/stop, C) the YouTube dotted circle
looking like it might spin for ever, or D) videos that
will sometimes come to a sudden "stop" or freeze,
that is often a sign that your cache/memory is full
and cannot take anymore.

Exit out of YouTube (but not your browser) and do
one of the steps below. Afterwards, shutdown and
reboot. Not only will this "free up" your computer's
memory, everything will be "fresh", and load faster:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

Internet Explorer 7:
→ Tools → Internet Options → Delete...
→ Delete files → Yes
→ Delete cookies → OK
→ Delete history → OK
→ Close (browsing history window)
→ OK

Internet Explorer 8:
→ Tools → Delete Browsing History
[. ] Preserve Favorites (leave blank)
[x] Temporary Internet files
[x] Cookies
[x] History
→ Delete

Mozilla Firefox 3:
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now
Google Chrome:
→ Tools (wrench) → Clear browsing data...
[x] Clear browsing history
[x] Clear download history
[x] Empty the cache
[x] Delete cookies
Clear data from this period: → Everything
→ Clear Browsing Data

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

How to clear the search history on the google search bar . is there a phone number that I can call as I am new to the computer world. Thanks


If you are using "Internet Explorer" as your web browser:

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Goto "Tool"
  3. Goto "Internet Options"
  4. Under "Browsing History", hit "Delete"
  5. On the next box hit "Delete All"
This will delete everything in the search bar.

If you are using "Mozilla FireFox" as your browser:
  1. Open FireFox
  2. Goto "Tools"
  3. Goto "Clear Private Data" or "Clear Recent History"
  4. Select all checkboxes
  5. Click "Clear Now"

That will clean you right up. You can also download a program called "CCleaner". After you browse the web, run that program and it deletes all of your searching and browsing history along with temporary files left behind from the browser

MYSPACE.COM IS IN SPANISH. I NEED ENGLISH NOW ! PLEASE HELP !


I would recommend clearing your browser cache and temporary Internet files, then trying to visit the site again.

If you are using Internet Explorer 7.0, go to Tools > Internet Options. On the General tab, in the Browsing history section, click Delete. When the Delete Browsing History dialog box displays click Delete All at the bottom.

If you are using Mozilla Firefox 3.0, go to Tools > Clear Private Data. Click Clear Private Data Now on the Clear Private Data dialog box.
