Does anyone know if there is a way to track browser history even if someone has gone to Tools / Internet Options / Clear History / Clear files ?

I have a suspicion that one of my son's friends has been visiting pornographic websites (my son swears it wasn't him) but everytime I try to check the history, it's been erased. Even though I have my settings to save History for 10 days.

Please help, I'm desperate. I've already shelled out big bucks having trojans / worms removed from my PC.

thank you

Internet Explorer, right?
Did you look in
C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxx\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
where xxxxx is user name

Possibly also here, but I think it was the old IE (permit viewin hidden files in explorer)
C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxx\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

There are other mirror places, but I can't remember where at this time, perhaps someone else will.
