not clearing history pages - Address bar drop-down still lists history
The following pages are made available, for browsing, in the drop-down list in the address bar of IE from history pages, even after deleteing browser history.
"Delete browsing history on exit" is also selected on general tab of Internet Options under Tools menu.
Options selected for deletion: Temp internet files, Cookies, History, Form data & Passwords.
Unselected options: Preserve Favorites website data & InPrivate Filtering data
These pages are not available in browsing history under favorites menu.

Solutions to the Problem not clearing history pages - Address bar drop-down still lists history
Here's THE solution gentle folks:
Go to Control Panel -> Control Panel Home (NOT the Classic View) -> System and Maintenance -> Indexing Options
As you can see Internet Explorer History is automatically indexed and can NOT be removed from Windows Search Indexing (i.e.
storing ALL entries).
But, we can flush out the entries by clicking on Advanced and then Rebuild.
Once you click on Rebuild and re-open IE8, ALL the previous pesky History entries in the address bar are GONER forever!!
