Impossible to delete can cleaner come to rescue ?

Recommended Posts

It's a good idea when asking about any problems to say which operating system you are using and which browser is affected, as this can alter what advice may be given.

 

As well as the above any other info you think may be relevant.

 

Do you already have ccleaner installed and have used it?

 

Are you having any other problem with your computer at the same time, and are your anti-virus and anti-malware programs up to date and scans are clear?

 

Found a link here which may give one of our members some ideas about why this might be happening

Are you being re-directed anywhere?

Sorry for the lack of info,

Yes I have and use cleaner, its excellent and I have speccy

 

I have windows 7 home premium, and I downloaded Internet Explorer 9 beta 4 days ago and then it started to happen (not sure if ie9 was the problem). So I uninstalled IE9 beta back to Internet Explorer 8 thinking I would be able to delete my Address bar history and I still cant.

 

When I open my "show address bar autocomplete" toggle (left of the refresh)in my history all I see now is

XD Proxy http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php'>http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php'>http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php'>http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php

XD Proxy http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php

XD Proxy http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php

XD Proxy http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect/xd_proxy.php

etc etc...

 

I am not being redirected, its just un-deleteable, They basically do not go away when I delete them and its growing by the day. Its something to do with facebook.

There is another thread about it here

 

http://github.com/facebook/connect-js/issues/issue/86

 

I take it you've tried things like Tools > Internet Options > Content > AutoComplete Settings > Delete AutoComplete history > [select items to delete] > Delete

 

I must admit that I am unsure about what advice to offer here to solve it and am hoping someone else can chime in with some ideas.

Have you looked in the History folder to see if they're there?

 

This is where it is in Vista...

 

C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History

 

Double click on the items in the history folder to view history.

 

User name is as far as you'll get without changing the folder view.

 

Tools > Folder Options > View

 

Show hidden files and folders and clear the box for hide protected operating system files.

 

Be careful, and be sure to change them back when you're done.

I believe my previous post only applies to history under the Favorites tab.

 

Some of the Address Bar Autocomplete data is stored in the registry, and as index.dat files.

 

When you highlight a line do you see a red X to the far right, if so click on it to delete the item.

Do you, by chance have a facebook addon/webslice/instant post plugin? Because that exact address for which you mention in the first post is definitly part of facebook connect (as hazelnut's posts point toward)

http://bugs.developers.facebook.net/show_bug.cgi?id=7632

and if it won't delete, I'm guessiong that as soon as the browser starts that site is accessed (also could be occuring from a desktop gadget/widget)
