    When I tell IE7 to delete my browser history, it acts like it does something, but then when I look, it has deleted nothing. I've tried this multiple times, and nothing is accomplished. I have Windows XP Home, and it is updated. Anybody know why it isn't working and how to fix it? Thanks

    Hmmm...have you tried deleting your browser history using Disk Cleanup?

    Just to see if it works?

    What you have to do is go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup, and run through the wizard. After it diagnoses your computer, check browsing history and see if it deletes it.

    That way you know if it's a problem with IE7 or not.

    Have a look at CCleaner and see what you think; http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

    If you decide to try it read all the details, be careful which, if any, items you check in 'Advanced' and don't use the 'Registry' option.
