History

I have a strange little problem.

 

There is ONE www-address in history that simply will not go away.

 

Using CC doesn't help. Cleaning with Explorer doesn't help.

 

Whenever I press a certain letter, this particular www-address pops up underneath the address bar.

 

This is not a major problem, but I'm beginning to wonder if this is some sort of browser hi-jacking?

 

I just want to get rid of it and have a totally clean URL-history.

 

But how?

What is the actual web address?, knowing this might help to solve the problem.

 

Have you tried putting the web address in to a search engine to see if this turns up any results?

Chances are you are not the first person it has happened to, so the answer is probably out there already, just waiting to be found.

 

Have you tried deleting it from the history folder manually?

 

Give us as much info as possible, someone will be able to help.

Much to my surprise, I managed to solve this on my own.

 

In a last, desperate attempt, I used RegSeeker hxxp://www.hoverdesk.net/freeware.htm and simply ran a search on the URL that won't go away.

 

Lo and behold, there was a matching "key" or entry in the register! I deleted this and the problem was gone.

 

I then searched some other URL:s I visit. And yes, several of them were also found in the registry.

 

Why this happens is beyond me. But some sites seems to leave a footprint in the registry and CC does not clean this away.

 

Anyway, thanks CaPMan for taking an interest in my little problem.

 

Cheers!!!
