Problem with "history files" in IE...

  1. Recently I have noticed that when I delete all my history, and cookies through the tools, option menu it doesn't get rid of three or four websites. I don't have them saved as favorites. I have gone and deleted cookies manually. And I have also preformed a search of the websites and it doesn't find it on the computer. But when I begin to type in a website, I get these sites which are somehow automatically saved. I don't know if this is spyware or what but Can somebody help me out?!?!?! Thank you!!

    Also, I downloaded Mozilla and when I use that, this problem does not occur. Only happens in IE?!??!

    You'd probably need to search for them in your registry.
    Make a backup before you delete any keys!

    And it shows you that you should not use IE, except for Windows updates.
    Continue with Firefox, and you'll be fine.
