search memory

In windows 98 it remembers past web page addresses and previous search words.  Is there any way to edit or delete these?
1 Solution
The easiest way to delete these is through TWEAKUI. Check under Control panel. It may or may not be there dependent upon installation. If not, it's on the Win98 CD. Not sure exactly where though... sorry. If you need to, first search the CD and if that doesn't work, goto Microsoft's web site and they should have it in knowledge base: support.microsoft.com . At any rate, assuming you can find it, there's a page titled "Paranoia". Sounds just like what you want.
Hi rspar,

To clear Web page addresses you can right-click on Internet explorer and choose:Properties-Clear History-OK.

For other lists such as: recent documents or Find list. Right-click on the Task bar-Properties-Start menu programs-Clear-apply-ok.

If you want to install TweakUI which gives you more options Go to \Tools\Reskit\Powertoy folder on your Win98 CD and right-click on the Tweakui.inf file and choose Install.

Good Luck!
You have a couple options. To clear the address you visit
1)Right click the IE icon on your desktop and click Properties
2)Click the Clear History and they are gone.
3)You can also set how long to keep them before they delete themselves

Another thing is
1)Right click the IE icon on your desktop and click Properties
2)Click the Content tab
3)Click the AutoComplete button
4)You can choose what to use autocomplete for.

And last
1)Right click the IE icon on your desktop and click Properties
2)Click the Advanced tab
3)Scroll down near the bottom and you can check on or off to use autocomplete in Web Addresses or Explorer
