Can history files in C:\Users\*user*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache be deleted?

Last Modified: 2015-07-01
This is the second time I have asked this question. THIS IS NOT THE BROWSER CACHE, the files are in the log files in the
directory? I feel these files are an evasion of privacy, anyone stealing my computer has that history to help them figure out how use my info for fraud. I use webroot and it cleans all the temp files and other files each time before I shut down.
