Hide the popup box in IE browser 7 when we try to delete IE history

Hi,

I have a strange requirement to hide the pop-up/dialog box that appears when we try to delete the internet history in IE 7/ IE8 browser asking our confirmation.
I use this piece of code below to delete the internet history. I invoke this command line code from Java:
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Bear in mind that you have posted to Windows 7 forum while you are using XP.
If you have no replies soon, may I suggest that you try again at Microsoft Answers forum.
