Re: Ghost History in IE

This link may help you with your issue. Try running the McAfee Stinger scan mentioned in this link

After following the suggestions in the link and no change happens, try the following free tool run this program and let it clean everything it finds and reboot the computer when prompted. You might want to download this program from a clean pc to a usb stick and rename the download and installation files to something you can remember as malware is written to self protect itself and by renaming ie ie will not see it as a threat. Do the same for SuperAntispyware

Keep us posted
