    Not to sure if you can turn it off but you can clear he history. On firefox you just go to tools at top of page then "clear private date", not to sure how to do it on IE but prob the same.HTH

    In IE, click on Tools, then Options, you should then have the general tab showing. Make sure the Days to keep previous viewed pages are set to 0 and it should clear them.

    You visiting some dodgy sites then chunkster?!

    On IE, go to Tools>Internet Options and you'll see history section at the bottom of that window. Just click Clear History. I think if you then set the days setting to zero, it will stop remembering them.

    Edit: Darn it Tony - you posted as I was typing! lol

    On Firefox to clear them as rushy said - just make sure the Browsing History box is ticked and tick/untick the other options accordingly to clear or keep those. To stop it doing it go to Tools>Options then click on the Privacy icon at the top. You can then untick the option to remember visited pages.
