JSI Tip 1763. When I clear History in IE, not all cached Addresses are removed?

After using Internet Options / General Tab / Clear History / Yes / OK, you still have cached addresses listed in the Address box:

1. Exit Internet Explorer.

2. Use Regedt32 to navigate to:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

3. In the right hand pane, delete all Value Names that begin with URL (URL1, URL2, URL3, etc.)

NOTE: If you don't delete all entries, the remaining entries must be in consecutive numerical order, starting with URL1. If they are not, rename them.
