A fair amount of this would depend on the browser being used. If you're using IE, you can do this through a utility published by Doug Knox, which lets you change many IE settings including whether or not the user can edit the History. With Firefox, you could use an add-on like Slogger (which creates logs of the browsing history) or Traction Control (same).
