Problem deleting borwser history with Internet Explorer 8 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When deleting the browser history, it keeps "deleting" and can run on for hours.  When I try to cancel, it won't, so I have to turn off the computer and then reboot.  Is there a software fix for this?  I use the McAfee Suite provided from my AT&T Yahoo account.  I also use Windows Defender, as well as the tools in my Dell Inspiron E1505 computer.  I have tried to keep it clean on a daily, if not weekly, basis.

  • 1. Tools --> Internet Options --> Advanced. Click on reset. That should fix the issue.

    2. Disable mcaffe while you clean the history.

    3. Try the 3rd party tool ccleaner it can clean out ie8's history for you.
