Hi

I need to prevent my users to clear the "History" of their IE.

Is it possible to do it altering the Windows Registry?

Yes!  You can lock Internet Options in the following manner

To unlock the Internet Options, follow these steps:
1. Quit all instances of Internet Explorer
2. Open Regedit.exe, navigate to this branch:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\
Restrictions]

3. Delete the "NoBrowserOptions" Binary value

4. Close Registry Editor, restart IE.
