I have always been able to view internet history but suddenly I only have computer history, I'm sure it is recent as if I go back 2 or 3 weeks then I can see the internet history but this last week only getting files on the computer. Very frustrating, any idea why this has happened. Using Windows 7, IE9 and AVG. Thanks for any help

Sounds like it was deleted by something you did. if its gone there is nothing that can be done. – Ramhound Dec 6 '12 at 16:50
I don't know if this would work, but you could use recovery software to try recovering lost files in case they were deleted accidentally by you. If they were deleted by software then I don't know if recovering them would work. You can google "Recuva" for recovering lost files. – Boris_yo Dec 6 '12 at 16:58
Just to clarify I haven't lost any files I am simply trying to see my browsing history so I can revisit sites. Clicking on history used to give me a list of sites visited now it gives me a list of computer locations visited. However, if I click on options under History for 2 or 3 weeks ago I still see sites visited. Last Week option also gives some sites but Monday, Tuesday, Wed and today only give computer locations. So I'm guessing something changed at the beginning of the week which is the day AVG scans so I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it. – Sheila Dec 6 '12 at 19:29
