    If you uncheck that checkbox, it will prevent history from being deleted. To remove deleted history from a browser, I do not think it possible, but I'll see what I can find.

    Why not use software like NetNanny or K9 to monitor his activity? Then it won't matter if he's deleting his history or not. You will still know what he's up to.

    I tried K9, and it would be great, but a couple dozen links comes under internet activity for just one website, really hard to track what my son is doing with 500+ site showing up just for simple 10 minute internet browsing.

    gurutech also recommended netnanny. I have never used either of these programs, so I can't provide any input
