Ds, 9, has googled "sexsy ladys" and is weeping with embarrassment (literally).

He is soooo worried that "my mates and guests and people like that" may see it and is begging me to get rid of it.

Is there a 'clear history' button in your internet options?

Go into Tools, then Clear Private Data.

That should do it.

you can delete it by selecting it and then deleting it -- ie put cursor in google box put in "sexsy" which should bring it up in the drop down list and then highlight it and press delete... or I would do clear history as M says

or just go down then press delete when it's highlighted

Or depending on your browser go into Tools, then Internet Options, then Delete Browsing History.

Thanks All.

He's in my bed and says he is not going to come downstairs until tomorrow, I don't think I've ever come across such embarrassment.
