    I cleaned it out pretty good, but I am giving it to my mom and I plan on leaving all of the old programing on it. It has windows XP and I can not delete my history of web sites. Nothing is coming up in the drop down window, I have no cookies, but when I start to type in a site, every site I have been to that starts with that letter comes up. Example, I type in the letter "n" I get several nextel sites, nfl sites, basicly anthing I have been to that starts with that letter. how do I get rid of this info?????? She is picking up the computer tonight.

    you can try turning off autocomplete, that'll hide your porn urls until you can delete the history.

    Why not format it and restore it? Much easier and you don't have to hide any of your porn, it'll all have been erased.
