kashifkhanMughal, CCleaner can do both. A REALLY determined snooper MIGHT be able to resurrect History, dunno, but it'll certainly keep less than determined prying eyes (wives, kids, co-workers, etc.) from seeing. Get it free @:
http://www.ccleaner.com/
Takes just seconds to run and I run it often (at least weekly if not daily).

Ccleaner does not clean your "Downloads" folder by default, and there is no tick-box specifically for doing that.

What you have to do is set your "Downloads" folder as a custom folder for cleaning:
Open Ccleaner.
Click "Options", then click "Include".
Click the "Add" button, then use "Browse" to navigate to your Downloads folder which by default is at C:\Users\<your account name>\Downloads

At bottom of include box, under "Options" choose "include files and sub-folders".
Click 'OK'

Now whenever you clean with Ccleaner, your "Downloads" folder will be emptied.

The DIR /S command will show ALL files in the directory & sub-directories. If you know where this "download information" is stored, why can't you just go to the folder & empty it?

Or try this:

The "dir /s" command you are using shows you the location
of the folder(s).

Are you seeing only the end of the output of the dir command?

To see all of the output, either use the "more" command:

dir /s | more

which shows you one screenful of output at a time, each time
you press a key (press Ctrl c to quit before the end of the
output is reached), or print the output to a file:

dir /s > kashilist.txt

then read the file with Notepad or any other text file viewer.

When I do "dir /s" I get 617 files listed in 518 directories. You
will probably have more than that.

You being in a command prompt and doing dir /s to determine what you should delete... is a VERY dangerous place to be. You can delete things you should not.

You should do the following assuming you are using IE

Go to Tools in IE and select Delete Browsing History
Then go into Accessories/system tools and run Disk Cleanup. check everything and run it.
Then in the same place run Disk Defragmenter. This will overwrite any clusters previously used for the history making recovery very difficult.

I would further advise you make a Internet Downloads folder on your desktop and only allow downloads to go to that folder. This gives you more control to delete what you want.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
