    Does anyone have any insight on how to prevent the 'My Computer' folder and its contents from being displayed in the History Items? (Internet Explorer > History)

    I know I can simply right click on it and delete it, or
    I can erase All history, I don't want to erase all, I just want to prevent 'my computer' contents from showing up.

    I can also use window washers, but this again deletes all.

    Nothing in the registry points me to my computer history contents either.

    I think it may have something to do with the index.dat file, not sure

    I googled this topic for few hours, nothing relevant showed up.

    I'm using WinXP with Service pack 2.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
