However, there are some website addresses, that just won't dissappear. It's only a handful, but I can't get rid of them.
It's not really that big of a problem (it's been like that for a year, now), but as new website addresses stay there and I can't get rid of them it's kinda starting to bother me a bit.
Let me explain it better:
I can delete everything, that's in the address bar, but when I type in www.g for example www.google.com/searchxyz shows, something i searched for a year ago (its been there ever since). the same happens when i type in www.s for example the name of a site starting with s appears. I don't have bookmarks for them.
Does anyone have an idea? thx!
It said it was used for forms and web addresses (they were both marked(exp?)).
Underneath it would have allowed me to clear forms and passwords.
However it only said where i could clear "web addresses"..which is the ordinary way I had already tried using.
P.S.: the words i used might be a bit different b/c im using a german version, but its only the words i assume.
EDIT: got it now. only had to clear it in the ordinary way again after disabling auto completion for "web addresses" and its fine. thx!
EDIT #2: This is really strange lol. I can unmark(exp?) "web addresses" in the autocompletion-thing and my problem is gone (as nothing is auto-completed anymore in the first place). But if I turn it back on the old addresses and all, that I cant delete out of my browser history are still there. Is there not any way to completely delete them?

1. Try logging in as an other admin user and find the user's temp folder under documents and settings
2. Try booting the pc in safe mode and using windows exploder.. er explorer to find the files under documents and settings.
3. Try something like Barts PE (Very advanced - you create a disk to boot windows)..
