Just out of curiosity.. why would you want to keep such items.

To answer your question Imo, you could Create a user account on that PC, or you could Configure the software that your using to delete them in the 1st place to Not Delete them.,

If your version of Vista includes a Group Policy Editor, hit the Windows key + R to open a Run box. Type in gpedit.msc

You can either expand Computer Configuration or User Configuration. Choose the former if you want to apply the settings for all users that use the computer and the latter if you only want these settings for the currently logged in user.

Now expand Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Internet Explorer and choose Delete Browsing History.

Note that you may not have a Delete Browsing History option and if not, then all of the settings will be under Internet Explorer, like shown above. Now you want to find each one of these settings and configure them as Enabled.

Disable "Configuring History"

Prevent the deletion of temporary Internet files and cookies

Turn off "Delete Browsing History" functionality

Turn off "Delete Forms" functionality

Turn off "Delete Passwords" functionality

Disable changing Temporary Internet files settings

Disable changing Advanced page settings


Once you enable all of those settings in Group Policy, make sure to restart the computer. In order to enable an option, you have to double-click on it and choose Enabled.

Now when someone browses the Internet on that computer using Internet Explorer, then they will not be able to delete their browsing history, temporary Internet files, cookies, filled-in forms, or passwords.

Note that this will only work for Internet Explorer. If someone decides to use Firefox or Google Chrome, etc, then they can delete the history for those browsers, regardless of what the group policy settings are.

Note: Better have a huge hard drive if you are not going
to delete the temporary internet files.
