Restore deleted internet history using Windows Vista

Restore deleted internet history using Windows Vista

Here is how for IE7 the settings are pretty close to the same as Vista. Just use the search feature to locate the path. It is possible to restore the computer back a couple of days and you should find the history replaced as well. If you really want to be sneaky and see everything including his IM, Email, and MySpace including passwords you need a good key logger. If you want to make sure your kid is not getting into trouble that is the way to go

Try this one:

Actual Keylogger is a free keylogger which runs hidden in the background and automatically records all keystrokes including Alt, Ctrl and other functional buttons. The interface can be password protected and the log files are encrypted. You can view the reports as HTML or plain text. In the hidden mode it is invisible in all operating systems.

For Windows XP, Internet Explorers history is kept in a peruser directory underneath \Documents and Settings. Assuming a default locations, that would be:The easiest way is to simply recover the contents of that directory, including all subdirectories, from a recent backup.

Username would be replaced by your login user name. So mine, for example, would be c:\Documents and Settings\LeoN\Local Settings\History.

Note: the History directory is marked invisible by default, so its likely that you wont find it by default. Youll need to enable viewing hidden files in Windows Explorer, or searching for Hidden Files when you perform a search. In a Command Prompt, you can simply CD to it, even if you dont see it.

The easiest way is to simply recover the contents of that directory, including all subdirectories, from a recent backup. If youve been making regular backups of your full system, as recommended, then you can simply use your backup utility to restore only those directories, after which you should be able to restart IE and have the old history restored.

Alternated, and with an even lower chance of success is to see if you can undelete an older version of the files found in that directory. If you get very lucky you might be able to undelete or recover a file that has the history you want. I do not recommend this approach, simply because the chances of it working are so very low.

Ultimately, I believe that the chances for successfully recovering this data is so low, that it is effectively zero.

I will throw out one last approach but its expensive, potentially time consuming, and really only for the most dire of circumstances. It is sometimes possible, using advanced data recovery techniques, for a data recovery service to recover this type of data. Youd be sending them your hard disk, and youll be writing a fairly large check. There are many factors involved, and its definitely not as easy as you might see on TV, but it can, sometimes, be done.
