Is there any way to disallow certain users to erase their browser history in Windows XP HOME ?
Maybe a registry setting ?

Thanks.

There's only one way, the way of the worm drive (write-once/read many). SInce it cannot be rewritten, It cannot be replaced.  An older choice was to send the out put to a printer, whch cannot go back (in reverse).  Anything else is hard to manage well, and will ever remain hackable.

How about trusting employees/staff? (or replace them with those whom you can trust)

Are we trying to find out where your kids have been browsing?

paste this into a text file called history.reg:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"History"=dword:00000001


Run the file while logged on as each user you want to restrict

Cheers
