Hi.  I'm looking for a program that will allow me to view the browsed history of a client computer.  This is after the fact so it can't be something that records, I guess.

Thanks all

    That could be difficult.  Each browser keeps it's own history separately and they can delete the browsing history when you close the browser if they want.  I have 6 different browsers on this computer and each has a different history of sites I have visited.

    Another program is History Viewer

    Try the various categories in the left Panel, especially URL History and Index.dat .
