    Hi all
    Browser history only populates for 2-4 days instead of the 21 days setting.
    Have deleted history and/or (everything), many times.
    Also uninstalled same hoping for it to automatically reinstall correctly if
    corrupted, but still no joy. It used to work, but have lost track how long
    ago, so system restore
    does not help.
    I do not have Norton installed.
    Am running IE7.Win xp sp3.
    Appreciate any helpful response.
    This is not a real problem but would like to find the solution.
    TIA

    Install a real browser, such as Firefox or Opera. As a very-much last resort
    use IE8.
