IE9 hide delete history

Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I am having a problem with Internet Explorer 9 and removing a users ability to delete their history.  
I have gone through the local GPO settings and disabled delete history, which effectively grays out in internet options, I have also disabled it through the Safety settings as well.  However the one that I cannot remove, or block is through the favorites button.  If you go into favorites and then tab over to history you can delete all or some of the info contained in it.
I don't understand why the local GPO doesn't seem to affect this part of IE9.  Can someone please tell me how I can remove a users ability to delete the history through the favorites tab.
