Under the Tools bar, I selected Clear Recent History... which FINALLY cleared it off.

It wouldn't clear before when I attempted to erase from the History, show all history, and deleted all dates listed nor when I tried deleting everything from my Internet Options found on the control panel.

Hope this helps for you as well! : )
