Internet Explorer 9 is not saving the browsing history in Windows Vista Computer.

Original title:IE9 NO HISTORY Vista 64 bit

HISTORY SAVING HAS been gone for 6 weeks now. this is a drag since I reallyh rely on recent research.

Never had this problem and I really don't want to delete my history to get it back...

I have fixed several computers that have gone bad and were overrun with malware and saving the data, without wiping the drive.

I am sure there is a fix for this without erasing existing history.
