in reply to Deleting Microsoft's hidden web caches created by IE5

This formula is too complicated for me. But I pulled an excellent article from I had entered dir/s and dir/s/as, before using a window washer so had idea of all the sites I had visited from day one listed right there. Window washers do some good but did not get all the urlcaches but did delete a good deal from this directory. c:\windows\dir/s Go to start/run/ type in "Regedit" the "Registry Editor" will pop up, go to "Edit" click on "Find" type in "TypedURLs" then hit "Find Next. You will be taken to all the places you have typed in URLs manually. Erase any URLs that you find. DO NOT ERASE THE FOLDERS. Outlook express is another strong hold for these client Urlcaches and HP even had a list of all the sites I had down loaded and printed. Also go to "Tools" "Internet Options" "Content" "Auto Complete" and un click "Web Address" "Forms" and "User Names And Password On Forms" this will take away the memory of your name and SSN so you will no longer be able to left click and have your name and SSN appear on the form and you will no longer have a history of URLs under your address bar but there are at least two other url that will store this address for you.
