How to Easily Clean IE7 Browsing History

A friend of mine who is also a fan of Internet Explorer ask if there is a way he can easily remove or clean up his IE7’s browsing history. I told him that he can use a cleaning software like ccleaner to cleanup his computer, but he said that what he wants is to just clean only Internet Explorer 7 histories. To solve his problem what we did was we build a batch file to automate the cleanup.
