So far I am automating internet explorer from VB very well and navigating the web awesome. I want to get the History of the user. Not the current web borwser history but the history you find in the history folder on your HD. In nt it's in "Local Settings" folder. The problem is that they don't store this history as a text file anywhere that I can see. In explorer it appears it in the history folder but if you use wordpad to try to open anything in the history folder it is blank even when *.* view is selected. My questions is where doews MIcrosoft get this info from to populate the windows explorer view so that I can grab the same info!!!!
