    Editing user.dat

    I have a problem where some, er, shall we say, inappropriate URL's <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15> visited by my teenage son are not being cleared from the IE address bar when I delete the history files. I got a Windows Script Host program called ClearTyped URL's from Fred Langa's newsletter, but it doesn't seem to work under Win95. The URL's seem to be in the User.dat file - I see them when I do a text search. I'm afraid I'm going to have to delete all users and start over again, but I'm afraid of having to rebuild my Outlook e-mail, desktop settings, etc. Is there another way to get rid of those URL's? Thanks for any <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    Ahh Kids...

    There is software you can install to keep him from going there, you might search www.historykill.com to download a program that will do it for you. Just make sure that your son doesn't get a hold of that one.. or you might never know... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the quick response.
    >Click on Tools, Internet Options.

    >Click on 'Clear History'.
    Yep, tried that, doesn't clear everything. I'll look at the "HistoryKill" site. Thanks.
