automatic Lookup clearing

Is there a way to clear the lookup history automatically rather than running the  diagnostic tool and doing it manually over 4 computers?

Not automatically. Be glad they added that to the ACTdiag. The other choice involves directly editing the Windows registry which is where that information is stored

Not in the registry, in files as per: http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14639
So, it would be possible to create a BAT file or network script to remove the files.
Unfortunately, as the folder names are generated randomly, I'm not sure how you'd determine the right folders to delete the files in for multiple machines.

That is a better answer than not possible I know how to make dos bat files would have to see how to have one run on start up or shut down on windows 7 if I could find out the right files to delete.
