The history is not in your registry, so do not make any changes there; improper registry changes can seriously harm your operating system. You should be able, as I understand your problem, to change your browser settings to delete auto fill. If you reply telling us what browser you are using, then our Members can explain how to change the setting.

Internet Explorer 5 and higher:
1. From Internet Explorer, choose "Tools" then "Internet Options";
2. From the "Internet Options" multi-tabbed dialog box that appears, select the "Content" tab;
3. Click the "AutoComplete" button;
4. Uncheck everything;
5. Click the "Clear Forms" button;
6. Click the "Clear Passwords" button;
7. Press "OK" to close the dialog boxes.

If you are giving the computer to someone else, it might be a very good idea to wipe the entire hard drive clean, reinstall Windows, and then give it to them. There are just way too much personal information stored in all sorts of unlikely places on a computer, and you would be providing your niece with something like a really "new" computer.
