    I know this is a strange question. How do you delete a site address from the address bar without deleting others. Win xp

    Well you cant... It is stored in your temporary internet files/cookies folder. I cannot remember which. But if you delete the contents of those folders it should go away. If you want better security so no one can see your browsing history... try getting Mozilla Firefox. It is better than IE plus you can delete your history, cookies, saved sessions, passwords and recently typed websites with the click of a button.

    You may be able to via the History folder, though it may/may not always be there (the address).

    If you go to Windows Explorer, then click on c:\Documents and Settings\Your name\Local Settings\History

    Then, see if you can find the address in there, and delete it.

    However, I tend not to have any address's showing on mine, so if you want to do that, try this:

    Control Panel | Internet Options | Content tab. Click Autocomplete,a nd then untick Web Addresses.

    Also, to speed up your system, go to Advanced tab and scroll down to Security. Tick the box Empty Tempory Internet Files...Apply and Ok.
