IE9 Frequent Sites list is now empty, won't repopulate

I am not sure what the triggering event is, but the New Tab on IE9 (Windows8) is not displaying any "Frequent Sites" Any more.

I have tried all of the troubleshooting steps that I could find, including the clear all of the history, etc... nothing changed.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Just a guess: as many people share not only their computer but also their account, they might not want others to see this list - therefore, some security softwares that are also capable of guarding the privacy of the user, simply disable the functionality of that page (and delete the browsing history and so on). Do you run such a software?

Also try doing a Reset of IE9. IE9, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Reset. This brings IE and its settings back to out-of-the-box condition. That may bring back History.

bjohnson_MN--Enter Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and delete this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing\NewTabPage\Exclude

Back this key up so that if you do not like the results you can restore it.

Are you sure you are running IE9 rather than IE10?

All,
Here's a response to your questions:
1. No Security software other than the defaults that come with W8.
2. Only one using my machine.
3. I've tried the reset, to no avail.
4. I am an idiot, Yes, This is IE10.

I'll try the registry trick and award a solution if it works.

Well, I am an idiot.  I must have tapped the hide sites button.

I am an idiot  No, not at all. There was a sign on our Church this past week (there is always a sign as it is on a major thoroughfare):  "Experience is the name we give to mistakes we make"  (Oscar Wilde, I think).

I was happy to help, and I probably make more mistakes than you.
