With IE 7.0 opened go up to Tools.
To Internet Options.
Click the Settings button under Browsing History.
Under Current Folder it shows you where they are

Hello There... I think what I will tell you that will help you out

Just go to
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator
In this directory you will see the folders of COOKIES and Local Settings
 The cookies folder contain the data about alll your internet activities in text file format You can check them out if you could understand that
The Next Local Settings
Here you will see some 4-5 folders. The folders that contain you internet browsed history are TEMP and Temporay Internet files.... These two folders contain all the history you have browsed during your browsing session

You can also check the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users
This may have all the browsed history from all the users

Hope You will find the solution

Another place is to view the index.dat file under username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Superwinspy will view the dat file

You may use FileMon utility from Sysinternals (now supported by Microsoft) to see what are the files accessed in realtime by Internet Explorer.

http://technet.microsoft.com/fr-fr/sysinternals/bb896642.aspx

It's a powerful utility that I use to spy what applications exactly do at the filesystem level. One powerful function is the definition of filters that can restrict to, for example, only one application such as Internet Explorer.

Enjoy !

And you would probably have to rename YOUR history folder, and replaec it with thier to read it, as it is not normally legible data.....

The last way would be through the registry, under HKEY_CURRENT_USER_Software\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\TypedURLs
