no browser history in ie 10 windows 7 home premium

when I click on the star (favorites menu) and click on the history tab, I have no visable browser history.  the only option that shows is search history, with a drop down arrow and if I choose it, I get a search box.  even if I type a webpage I know I have visited, nothing turns up in the search.  I've checked my internet options.  I do not have clear history on exit checked.  I have all history setting at default, storage size at 250 and days to store at 20.  I have unistalled ie 10, and there same problem exists in ie9.  reinstalled ie 10, and still no history.  any suggestions would be appreciated.  I have even tried to use history viewing software and the only results I get are for chrome and foxfire, but none for internet explorer.

In my case this appears to be an issue with the location of the temporary internet files location.  Guessing it was eliminated during the update somehow.  I tried to move the location to a non-standard location and everything works fine now.
