Can't Delete Browser History In Explorer

I currently run Norton A/V, XP Home and SP2. Ever since I downloaded
IE7, I can no longer delete history items in Windows Explorer (right-
clicking only brings up 'Expand' on folders and 'Open' on items). It
also doesnt always show how long ago the history is from. What can be
done about this?

Thanks

RE: Can't Delete Browser History In Explorer

If you open Explorer History using Favorites Center (Gold Star), Click on the
Yellow icon to expand the menu then right click and delete the link.

Still in the Favorites Center History Files, Click on down Arrow next to
History. You can then sort by choice.

History Date will also depend on how many days you keep history pages. To
check, Tools>Internet Options>General Tab.
Under Browsing History click on Settings Button
Under History, you should see Number of Days to Keep Pages in History
You can set the amount of days you wish to keep but, it is advised as follows:
1) O days to save disk usage
2) Too many saved may cause a Corrupt Cache File.

RE: Can't Delete Browser History In Explorer

If you open Explorer History using Favorites Center (Gold Star), Click on the
Yellow icon to expand the menu then right click and delete the link.

Still in the Favorites Center History Files, Click on down Arrow next to
History. You can then sort by choice.

History Date will also depend on how many days you keep history pages. To
check, Tools>Internet Options>General Tab.
Under Browsing History click on Settings Button
Under History, you should see Number of Days to Keep Pages in History
You can set the amount of days you wish to keep but, it is advised as follows:
1) O days to save disk usage
2) Too many saved may cause a Corrupt Cache File.
