    Anyone know how to clear the history on Windows Media Player 9? It doesnt allow for this, is there a way I can do it manually??

    I think you can go to...

    Your home directory>Library>Preferences>Windows Media Player Prefs

    If I remember correctly

    Its a pain, so you might want to put the folder on your dock
    QuickTime gives you the option

    Always good to clear your porn tracks :eek:

    You'd better remember to do "Erase Free Space" in Disk Utility every so often, or your "porn tracks" will stay on your comp until your HD fills up - 7331 hackers could expose your deleted files unless they're zeroed..... ..... of course I'm not paranoid! *clears all computer caches six times a day* What makes you think that?!

    Erase Free Space, eh... Hmm. Why have I never been told of this? I've always wondered how OS X is able to permanently get rid of files; it all suddenly makes sense.

    Or you could do Secure Empty Trash which zeroes them out. Correct me if I'm wrong, but my reasoning is that the files hang around, albeit unnamed, until they are overwritten after all the completely unused space on your HD is used up.

    And from the looks of it, that's a Windows registry file... :confused: :eek: I like Microsoft, they're silly :D
