Firstly, make sure that your folder options are set so you are allowed to see the hidden files. To do this, go to any folder and click on Tools, Folder Options, and the View tab. And click on show hidden files and folders.
If you are using Internet Explorer, there is an index.dat file located in your user folder:C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 In order to see this folder and the index.dat file you either need to be logged in as another user, or type in the above address location into your start menu - run and press enter. It will take you to the content.ie5 folder directly. Otherwise, you'll only get to see your temporary internet files. Make a copy of this index.dat file to your desktop and then change the extension to TXT so you can open and read the urls in notepad.
Also, there is another directory: C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\History\History.IE5 in which there is another index.dat file and can have more folders with index.dat files in them. Do the same for these files and you'll have your URL list. Depending on how the machine deletes your history, if you can't find your URL, then it may be permanently deleted. If however, this has helped you, please do rate me. Thanks

How do i find out where i bought an auto part about 8 months ago

Decide on the likely sources and get the price with any tax and shipping. If you use a credit card go online and review your transactions for that amount and for merchants that could have sold it to you. If the store has a loyalty program and you are in it they may be able to tell you what credits you earned when and identify the transaction. If the part is a store brand then you may be able to figure out which store sells it. I am guessing you have a warranty issue. They may help without the receipt if you can present a compelling case or high probability of having purchased it with them. it could simply fall into a customer satisfaction issue and they will help you if they like you (be nice.) If you bought it online and have not cleared your internet history then you may be able to go back in your browser's history to eight months ago and see which places you searched and find a transaction; perhaps the last place listed. Good luck... It sounds like a problem I would have, lol!

How do I erase youtube history

Assuming you are speaking about your PC or Tablet, you can use the browser itself to clear the cache and all history from the "Tools" or "Settings" menu. If you only want to clear Youtube history and not other sites, while in the browser, hold down the control key (Ctrl) and press the "h" key. When the history list shows up, right click on the sites you want to remove and pick "Delete" from the pop-up menu.

Stopping browsing history

Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing." Private browsing must be activated each time you open your browser.

Recover history pls

Internet browsers have improved tremendously during the past several years, with software adding more features to help Web surfers navigate the ever-growing Internet.

One of the best features is the browser's history, allowing a user to go back to view previously visited websites.

While it is easy to accidentally delete the history, it can be recovered.

Open 'My Computer" and select "Documents and Settings."

Go to your "username" (the name you login to your computer with).

Click "Local Settings," then click "History."

A list will populate, and you can search for the files you need.

Hope this helps

How to see web history

Internet Explorer 7 is a popular Internet browser offered by Microsoft. As all Internet browsers so, Internet Explorer 7 keeps a record of your search history. So if want to retrace something you searched earlier or you want to check the history of someone else who has accessed your computer, you can view Internet Explorer 7 search history.


1.Launch Internet Explorer 7 by clicking on the icon of it that is located on your computer's desktop or by finding it by clicking on "Start" and then the "All Programs" list.

2.Click on the "Star" icon that is located in the upper left-hand corner of your Internet Explorer 7 browser window.

3.Click on "History" from the drop-down menu that appears in the left navigation pane that pops up on your IE 7 window. Your search history is displayed. Click on an item within the list to visit the website.

I assume you are talking about recent searches in websites.

This can be done. It is done differently in all browsers though.

Basically it works by going to the browsers options, and choosing privacy, and then clearing browsing history, stored passwords, cache, and recent search history, etc.

for future reference, you may use a browser such as firefox, and enable "private" browsing. This will not record any traces of where you go, or what you do so that other users will not be able to sniff into things which they shouldnt have a part of.
