Hello---
I recently purchased a new computer that came with IE8 and (unfortunately) Bing. I've never experienced Bing before and didn't pay it much attention until now. I've noticed some more "adult" oriented sites I've visited are now showing up in the suggested site drop-downs. I'm not comfortable with this and immediately moved to disable the suggested site function. Suggested sites are no longer offered up. My question is this: Now that the suggested site function has been disabled, does that delete all previous sites recorded by Bing? For example, if it is re-enabled at some point down the road, will all of the previous site suggestions (even the ones I do not want), still show? If so, how do I get rid of them permanently and start fresh?

Hi barkingbulldog ,

Welcome to HTG ,

I am not an IE user but if you hold Ctrl+Shift+Delete a pop up box will appear where you can select what you want to delete permanently.
