Hi Darthry-ga,

As a frequent user of both the google nav bar, and internet explorer,
I have the quick and simple ways to accomplish these tasks. The first
requires a registry edit slightly. Be very careful when editing the
registry. Check twice before making a change.

Google's history is located in your registry under the following key:

Goto your start menu, click run, type regedit, click
HKEY_CURRENT_USER, click Software, click Google, click NavClient,
click 1.1, click History.

In the right side frame you will see displayed the history of your
google toolbar searches. Right click the search phrases you wish not
to be seen, and click delete.

Internet Explorer's History file is located on the top of the page. 
Reading from the top left corner of your internet explorer window to
the right, the buttons start with Back, Forward, Stop, Refresh, Home,
Search, Favorites, Media, History. Click history and either a new
window, or a left side frame window with your web surfing history will
appear as part of the current page. By right clicking and choosing
delete from that menu, you can delete a history from a single day, a
single week, or several weeks depending on how the surfing history is
currently displayed. You can also choose to view them by date, by
website name (probably the best place to delete complete site visits),
by most visited and by order visited today.
