Expunging User Info Automatically in IE

I'm at a public library and many of our patrons fail to un-check the "remember me" boxes when they log into their email and/or social network(s). We have Deep Freeze installed, so, when the computers are rebooted at the end of the day, the information is expunged from the PC. Many patrons log in & out of these PCs during the day through EnvisionWare's PC Reservation system; if user A saves his information, then user B can see it.

I've found Click&Clean and implemented it for our Chrome installations. That has killed the problem of saving information there; however, in IE, I've yet to find a solution that works. I do have "clean history on exit" selected and all options for cleaning enabled. Login information still sticks if "remember me" is clicked.

Any other options for automatically cleaning all login/password/history stuff on exit in IE? Currently we have PC Reservation set to reboot PCs after a session has ended which makes the process of moving between users a great deal slower.

But; do it immediately after a deep freeze image restore and then create a new image.

Great! Thanks!
Another question: is there a way to do the same thing for user names? Some people are bothered by any personal information being left on the machine at all.
Handling that would depend largely on how you have these machines set up, such as whether each is a stand alone system or on a network.
They are all tied into a network; however, they're currently not attached to a domain. Our controller crapped out on us and another one is currently being prepared. They will eventually be rejoined.
I would wait until the domain controller was back on line and then use a group policy to handle user issues. That will, by far, better handle this as a security issue.
Sounds good. Once it's up & running, I'm sure I'll have a few more questions to pose. Thanks for your help!
You're quite welcome.
