How do you erase the history in Windows XP? I bet almost everybody knows that.

Thank you

I do it by having my browser open select "Tools" "Internet Options" and clear history folder and also cookies. You can also set it to clear history folder after an item is so old. I don't know if this is the proper way or not but it's they way I have been doing it.

for Mozilla FireFox users its:

Tools / Options / Privacy / History

I also use some other program, Windows washer 6.0 seems to do a good job also. It is faster to go to tools / Options / Privacy / History if you want the simple way.

Thanks to all who responed, I knew it was easy. I guess you can not delete through start/explore as you can with windows 98.

You can but it's a PITA.

"C:\Documents and Settings\**USER NAME**\Local Settings\History".

Your account name goes here "**USER NAME**"

Use the IE Options, it's much esaier.

Edited to add: You will have to delete the files on each account.
