    Tried the TSG search for History Kill but came up empty.

    Has anybody used it and how well did it work?

    I didn't keep it long, which is not unusual for me. I guess if a person wanted to keep another person from seeing where they had been on the net it would be a good idea.

    There is nobody else in my house but my wife and I couldn't get her on the pc for anything.

    I do all my deleting manually.

    If you don't need the boss key and unrecoverable data wipe, a batch file will do for deleting your history. Its only 528 Bytes.

    COPY C:\Windows\Cookies\DEFAUL~1.txt
    C:\Windows\Desktop\Brendan\Applications
    DELTREE /y c:\Recycled\*.* > NUL
    DELTREE /y c:\Windows\Tempor~1\*.* > NUL
