I clean history in Konqueror but when I reboot it reappears.

Can anyone tell me which is the Konqueror history file(s) so I can manually edit them? Which is the cause of that to happen?

Newb here, grain of salt...

My suggestion is to not only open and edit the file, but also to change its permissions to read only. It will not inhibit your browsing at all. I couldn't find the article about this, but setting the files in the .kde directory to readonly is a very good way to cover your tracks. It is also possible that there is a gui setting to erase recent documents, like in gnome. Couldn't say for sure. Hope this helps.

Where does Konqueror store its history, and how do I erase it?
There are several kinds of "history" stored by Konqueror.

The location bar combobox items and completion: since KDE 2.2, you can clear those with right-click, "Empty Contents".
The history module in the sidebar: since KDE 2.2 you can clear it with a right-click on one of the host names, and selecting "Clear History".
The HTTP cache (known as "Temporary Internet Files" in other environments) can be cleared in the KControl module called "Cache", using the "Clear cache" button on the bottom right.
File locations (~/.kde is only an indication. Your distributor, or $KDEHOME, could have modified that value) :
Combobox items: ~/.kde/share/config/konq_history
History module and combobox completion: ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/konq_history (binary file)
HTTP cache: ~/.kde/share/cache/http/ (previously in ~/.kde/share/apps/kio_http/cache/)
