I occasionally find that my internet history won't clear (select 'tools' + 'internet options' + 'clear history'). I have Windows XP, but have seen the problem on Windows 98 as well. On W-98 I have rarely seen a condition that will not allow history items to be cleared individually ( right click on item and delete). I can go to the history folder and clear , but that takes too much work and I hate work! Thanks for any help.
