    My IE history function stopped working quite a while ago when I was using
    version 5.1. It has stayed broken through upgrades to IE 6.0 and to 6.0 SP1.
    When I select the "history" icon I get a list starting with History and containing only the file "index.dat". The only other item in the history list is
    "desktop.ini". I have scanned the registry and it is OK. Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling IE?

    Hi.
    Try going to Control Panel - Add/Remove programs-
    select IE 6 - click add/remove- select Repair IE.
    You may have to reboot.
    See if that helps.
