I use internet explorer 9 and just recently it stopped saving my browsing history. The amount of disk space is set to 250 mb and is set to save for 30 days. I know the "delete browsing on exit" box is unchecked as well. I've tried deleting my old history, cookies, and temporary internet files but my history still isn't saving! When I uncheck "enable protected mode" in my security settings my browsing history starts to save again. Is there a way to get my browsing history to save without unchecking "enable protected mode"? The box always used to be checked before and my history still used to save! Please help

Have you tried using the Advanced tab - Reset Internet Explorer Settings? I should also add that you should first Export your bookmarks and save them internally to your hard drive or better yet by another external storage.

I've been having the same problem too.  I don't look at it that often but I looked down

one day and boom, absolutely no history and I really needed to find it ........... I found

what I needed by back tracking but Microsoft should ensure that something like that

can't happen unless you make it a point to happen.  You get busy, a slip of the finger

and I spent hours until I found the answer but I don't even remember how now so I'm

very happy to see this.  Hope your advice works!!
