    It used to be that I could selectively delete entries in my browsing history within Windows Explorer (Documents and Settings/User/Local Settings/History), but that folder seems to have disappered with IE8.0. Is that folder hidden somewhere else now?

    It's within the hidden folder structure. You will need to "unhide" protected os files and folder;
    From any explorer window, select tools>>internet options>>general, browser history, settings>>veiw files.

    C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temp orary Internet Files
    C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Hist ory

    X= username.

    To unhide these protected folder Control Panel/Folder Options or open Windows Explorer and choose Tools/Folder Options. On the view tab check Show hidden files and folders, Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (answer yes to the pop ups that will come up) This should allow you to see the files Clint already discussed.
