I'm having a problem with my IE8 history file. It appears to be showing files from sites that were accessed a long time ago in a more recent time group. Like for example it is showing a .jpg file from a facebook profile (rather than the webpage itself) that I looked at approximately 6 weeks ago, within the '2 weeks ago' category. Is there a known issue as to why this may be happening, and how do I go about fixing it? From a quick google search, it seems like it may be a corrupted history file, but I am not sure if this is correct.

Help needed!


ETA: It also appears to not be allowing me to delete files from the history - if I try, it appears to be successful, but when I check again, the file is still present in the history.

I would go into your Internet Options, select the Advanced tab and use the "reset" button to restore your Internet Explorer settings.

*WARNING* This will disable/reset any browser toolbars, accelerators and settings that you have (which in most cases is a good thing).
