The History folder must have been moved.  Do a search for it with Windows Fiind.

But since you are looking for address bar history, those are located in registry.  You need to copy the registry to the new computer.

Hello turn123,

The visited links are stored in History.  You can copy the content of History folder to another computer.

History folder is located in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\HISTORY.  It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden folders.  In Windows XP, open Windows Explorer or any folder.  Click on Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders".  If you want to see system files as well, unclick Hide protected operating system files.   Click OK.

In Windows Vista,  click on the Start button > Control Panel .  When the Control Panel opens you can either be in Classic View or Control Panel Home view:
A. If you are in the Classic View do the following:
   1. Double-click on the Folder Options icon.
   2. Click on the View tab.
B. If you are in the Control Panel Home view do the following:
   1. Click on the Appearance and Personalization link .
   2. Click on Show Hidden Files or Folders.
   3. Go to step 5.
Under the Hidden files and folders section select the radio button labeled Show hidden files and folders. Click OK.

Hope this helps!

Thank you war1.

For some reason I can't find it there for this particular user.  I can find it on other computers though so I know I'm looking in the right place (and I can find the Local Settings folder so I know I have hidden files turned on).

What I'm looking is the links in the address bar where you start typing and IE7 suggests what it thinks you might be looking for.

Any more ideas?

Thanks again
