    I'm using the latest windows media player in Win7 and I have an issue. I can't clear the videos that I streamed from the web. I went into privacy and cleared the cache and all that but when I play a new video it asks me if I would like the previous video to play and BAM porn.

    No good with kids in the house. How do I clear out URLs and stuff short of uninstalling the damn thing!

    Just don't go on those adults sites. ;)

    Actually, this is a great way to check on your kids video surfing habits.

    Ah no. I have two little girls thats the last conversation I wanna have with them is "Daddy what are those two naked girls doing to each other?" No thats not a conversation I wanna have.
    CCleaner doesn't work. The videos that were streamed are still there.

    Built into windows one is maybe getting you? Taskbar properties: start menu, don't show recently opened items?

    Try using your browser tool (delete private data) or something like that; depending on which browser you have.

    Or, do a search for the offending files and delete them.

    Why not go to the ccleaner.com forum and ask them to add media-player cleaning?
