Well, the most effective is a system reload. But you can add a new user and delete your user profile, and then go into IE as the new user and clear history, a menu item.

When device is getting on device is hanging in windows mobile version screen

If its not booting up correctly you can either clean boot the device or reflash the firmware. Note this will return trh device to its default state and loose any information stored on the device.

Clean Booting the CN50

If the CN50 seems to be locked up, try warm booting and then cold booting the computer. If neither method works, use a clean boot to get the computer up and running for further troubleshooting. When you clean boot, the CN50 only loads files and applications that are absolutely required by the operating system. A clean boot returns the CN50 to an "out of the box" or factory default state, so that you can run diagnostic tests to troubleshoot the normal boot processes:

To clean boot the computer using the mobile computer:

1 Remove the battery pack from the back of the CN50.

2 Reinsert the battery pack and press the Power button.

3 When the CN50 starts the boot process, simultaneously press <and > until the IPL Boot Configuration Menu appears on the screen.

4 Press 2 to select Force Clean Boot and then press 0 to select

Continue with Boot.

The CN50 executes the clean boot. This process takes a few minutes

The clean boot process erases the CN50 memory, including all applications and data files in the object store. To preserve applications through a clean boot, store them in the Flash File Store.

Yahoo closes after I login to mail...any tips on what to look for?


Check your computer first, Praveen. Scan your computer for any 'bug' or 'bugs.'
Once it is clean of pests, install a firewall and an anti-virus program if you do not have one yet.
I strongly recommend a program for malware and adware also. Clean out any unnecessary data from your computer, delete Internet temporary files, history, cookies, saved passwords, and web information, plus any duplicate files. Store any added data on a USB drive, Zip drive, CD, or DVD. After that, do the maintenance on your computer: 1- Disk clean, 2- Check disk, 3- Disk defragmenter. If you have a registry cleaner, use it. This should help to give you some space back and get your computer in better shape and working faster. Do it regularly to help to keep it that way.
(Once a month should work, unless you use your computer a lot, than once a week)
Once done, go back into Yahoo and see if that has helped. If you continue to have trouble, contact service representative and explain the problem to them.

Can not delete browsing history, even after reseting explore 8, most of the browsing history is still there.

How did you try to clean the Browsing History? Manually from the Internet History folder or with the "Disk Cleanup" wizard or from the "Internet Options".
All these are to be done while the internet explorer is closed, otherwise you'll never be able to clean/delete them. But to clean histories or caches or cookies or temp files, there are many free tools to remove them safely and without loosing time.
You can use Ccleaner to clean the system. (Click Here to download), download and install Ccleaner. Open the program and click "Run Cleaner", that'll automatically clean most of the junk files which are no longer necessary. Please note that all browsers should be closed.
If you have problem doing this, please let me know with more details.

Good luck
Thanks for using FixYa.
