Many times the history (3 weeks) in Internet explorer v6.028 is gone.
It shows only the today's history, what happened?

The "Temporary Internet Files" directory is full with website info.
I work with WindowsXP Home (registered) Thanks for any help,
Ruud

Hi Rudy,

Depends.....here are some checkpoints to consider:

Check to be sure that your system date and time is correct. Also, if you
are using McAfee, this will help:

McAfee gave this solution to the bug where VirusScan stops your
Internet Explorer History file working.

Open VirusScan console
Select "Pick a task..."
Select "Change my VirusScan settings"
Select "Configure VShield background scanning"
Select "Customise your VShield settings"

Select the "Internet Filter" icon from the icons down the left hand side On
the "Detection" tab, in the 'Applet filters' section, remove the tick next
to "ActiveX Controls".

If this is not the case, run this edit:

Prevent IE History from Being Removed - Undo (Line 101)

To use the Regedit: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it
and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by
right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.

Note: If you are using the Personalized Favorites Menu, Internet Explorer
automatically hides site that are rarely visited from the Favorites menu.

All the Best,
