My recent history of the websites I visted daily is getting wiped out. I have not made any software or hardware changes.

Any idea what is deleting my recently visted websites ?

You could try deleting the damaged History folder- a new one will be created on restart.

What browser are you using?
Here's a couple of things you can check out if using:

Internet Explorer
Tools / Internet Options / Advanced tab
Scroll down to Security.
Make sure Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed does not have a check in the box.
If it does, remove it, click Apply, then click OK.
Also, under Browsing, you might want to put a check next to Use inline AutoComplete.

Then under the General tab, in the History box, set the number of days you want to keep links for.

Then under the Content tab, in the Personal information box, click the AutoComplete... button.
Put a check in the box next to Web addresses.

Tools / Options...
Click the Privacy icon.
Click the History tab.
Set the number of days you want to remember.
Then go to the bottom and click the Settings... button.
Make sure there is no check next to Browsing History, and Clear private data when closing Firefox.
