Hello Kittyzena,

I've used this program called " Free Internet Eraser " twice to clean others systems of Word file histories.
.
You should read the reviews before hand to ensure this program is what you want.
Also ensure that you only download the freeware version.
(Look twice, click once...)

Word? Internet Explorer? ?

Your downloads are appearing in your Wordpad history? I don't get that at all.

There are several freeware/shareware apps which will delete your wordpad history. Problem is I've never used any so I don't have specific recommendations.

Check out some freeware download sites like Tucows, Major Geeks etc.

See http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Secu...m-Cleanup.shtml
OR http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10394552.html

Use at your own risk.
