Q.  Is It Possible To Stop The URL And Command History From Displaying In Windows XP?

A.  Each time you type in a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) address in the address bar of Internet Explorer the evidence of the site you have visited remains on your pc. Sometimes you may not want other people to know what sites you have been visiting, therefore, it is prudent to remove the relevant URL history. Basically there are three ways of preventing URL and Command History from being displayed. The first, and perhaps the simplest, is to use third party software such as CleanCache. The second requires you to physically edit the registry to remove all instances of the sites you have visited. The third is to edit the registry and 'deny' permission to run the MRU (most recently used) URL history.

To deny permissions proceed as follows. Please Note: To rectify the problem you will need to edit the registry, therefore, before you proceed, you should ensure that you have backed up the registry either from within regedit itself or by using the third party software called ERUNT.

1. Click the Start button

2. From the Start Menu click Run

3. In the Run dialog box type: regedit and then click the OK button

4. Navigate to the following registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU

5. Right Click on the RunMRU option and, from the drop down menu select Permissions

6. In the permissions window place a check mark in the Deny section marked Full Control; Read; Special Permission for all the Groups or User names you wish to deny permission to

7. Finally Exit the registry
