    A utility program can delete the history and Internet files for you.

    It happens sometimes. Just go in and manually delete the stuff from the folders.

    Either that or reboot n' pray.

    you shouldn't go to those websites. Then you won't have that problem. Otherwise... tools -> internet options -> you have a clear history button there, and you can change the number of days to keep your history to something nice...like 0.
    Away.

    It won't usually delete when you have an instance of IE open as it's using the history folder. Just go to Control Panel and then Internet Options and do it from there.
