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 .

http://www.historyviewer.net/  goes in a loop when viewing Firefox14 info if Firefox is open.  When I closed everything and tried again, it did not show much of anything for Firefox.
