We run a few times into the issue, that IE9 does not save the browsing history anymore. Which results in all links loosing the different color after you click on them.
There are different solutions for this on the internet, the most common being to just clear your browser cache. Which unfortunately also clears all your passwords, links and defaults for forms.
A better but a bit more tricky way is to delete the index.dat file in the History directory.
Just follow the steps below:
- Open a Command Prompt Window (cmd.exe)This does NOT work with the Windows Explorer, you need the command line.
- Go to C:\Users\<<UserName>>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History(Replace <<UserName>> with your Windows account name)
- cd Low
- cd History.IE5
- del/a index.dat
That should be it. Let me know if it worked. It work for us.
