    Default

    Go to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

    In this Content.IE5 folder, look for the Index.dat file. You can get the history from this file. This file cannot be deleted by the currently logged in user. To view the index.dat file, download the Index.dat Viewer from any one of the below site:

    Index.dat Viewer (free) - Download WinSpy Index.dat Viewer 3.02

    Index.dat Viewer-View the URLs in the hidden index.dat file
