    I read a forum on here about how to prevent internet history from being deleted By Phantom010, listed below...

    Hit the Windows key + R to open a Run box. Type in regedit

    Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft

    Right-click on Microsoft, select New > Key

    Enter Internet Explorer

    Right-click on Internet Explorer, select New > Key

    Enter Control Panel

    Right-click on Control Panel, select New > DWORD Value

    In the right pane, enter History.

    Double-click on History to change the DWORD Value from 0 to 1 to enable the restriction.

    If you want the restrictions to apply to all users, navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    Right-click on Internet Explorer and select New > Key

    Enter Control Panel

    Right-click on Control Panel, select New > DWORD Value

    In the right pane, enter History.

    Double-click on History to change the DWORD Value from 0 to 1 to enable the restriction.

    Reboot.

    I did all of these things only for google chrome instead of internet explorer and it didnt work. I have windows 8 and was wondering if I need to do something different. Also there is this incognito mode where you can view anything online and it wont show up in browsing history. You can get to it just by pressing ctrl shift N. Can I disable that as well?
