The drop down Address bar in IE 5 contains a list of recently referenced addresses.  How can I delete addresses from the list?

Note: To see this right-click on an empty area of the IE5 command bar (File, Edit, View, etc) and check Address Bar.

C:\Windows\history

there are folders in there with different dates on them.. you'll need to go through them all.

Also you may want to check
C:\Windows\cookies
since alot of sites leave discrimating evidence there as well.

Actually, the easiest way to do this is to (while IE is running) is to click on Tools\Internet Options.  Then click on the buttons to CLEAR HISTORY and DELETE FILES under Temporary Internet Files.

To clear out the cookies, you'll need to go to the directory and mannaully do that.

Clearing history (Tools-Internet Options-Clear History) does in fact remove entries from the Address bar.  It doesn't, however, allow one to either(a) delete individual entries from the address bar or (b) delete only the entries in the address bar.  These entries aren't to be found in the C\Windows\History folder as best as I could tell.  Deleting all history dis serve to delete the entries from the Address Bar, so thanks.
