    Exactly where, I'm not sure, but here's a few things for ya.

    Hidden URLs in IE are coming from the registry key
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs]

    You can remove the AutoComplete option, but it'll only mask the history files.

    Setting the history to 0 will not "save" files, but the files will still be entered on your computer and recoverable.

    There's a program called Spider that'll remove these hidden URLs (history). Just get it to scan your whole drive for certainty.

    Here's a tread that talks about hidden urls and such for IE Link

    Hope this helps a little....

    Different operating systems use different paths to the history, temporary internet files and cookies folders. Check your system to make sure that you are using the correct path for your machine. For example, you may find your folders are located at ...\documents and settings\{identity}\{dir} or similar.

    TweakUI, a free program from Microsoft, has the ability to clear the typed cache, as well as history, etc. every time you close your browser. You can find it on Microsoft's download site (the newest versions are 2.0 for XP and 1.33 for 95-2000). There are also many other third-party programs which will allow you to do this same thing. Some are freeware, some are shareware and some are full retail packages. If you're interested in downloading one, just search some online archives, such as www.download.com or www.pcworld.com.
