Download Manager History Removal
« on: April 02, 2009, 07:56:17 AM »
I run Vista Home Premium on a Dell insperon 530, and all updates are installed.  I use MSN dial up as my ISP. I always delete my brouser history and temporary internet files,  and I run Cc Cleaner, and Zdelete.  And, I always delete all downloads in Download Manager.

But when I open the Download Manager screen and click on "View History", there is a list of everything that I have ever downloaded.  Each entry says that it is located in temporary internet files, which of course have been deleted.

If I right click on these entries nothing happens.  How can I delete this list?

Thanks.

What Download Manager are you talking about?

As I said, I use MSN dial up as my ISP (MSN Explorer).  The pull down menu under "View" includes "Download Manager".  That is the Download Manager that I am referring to.

Soybean, I am sorry that I don't have better way of explaining this. 

Thanks.

OK, I'm not familiar enough with MSN Explorer (never used MSN as my ISP) to help.  Let's see whether someone else, someone familiar with it, will chime in here.

Thanks for trying, Soybean.  BTW I got an answer from MSN.  They said that my user account settings have been corrupted.  And, they gave me a procedure to reestablish the settings.

Can't say that I understand this as everything except the clearing of this file has been working just fine.

Thanks again.
