I guess it's disabled so they can monitor what sites have been visited.

You can manually delete the history by going to the history folder and deleting them from there.

You can also download tools that will clean this up for you.

I thought index.dat had to be cleared to remove the history? (The files in Windows/Temporary Internet Files are easy).

Kame, can you confirm?

A quick and simple way to clear individual files from IE History is to open History and R click on the item and choose Delete from the pop-up menu.
