IE 9 history not saving, downloads not saving, nor cookies.
I am extremely new to computers and my son and I now have one. I believe he has made changes to his computer to hide his actions from me (hes 10 and knows more about computers than I),
*because his Internet Explorer history only saves sites sporadically it seems,
*and downloads are also not saving, and neither are cookies.
I'm sure other things are not saving as well.
*I have tried to reset his IE settings to default, and it did nothing.
I have noticed that the few cookies that are in his Temporary Internet files are all searches for Windows how-tos' involving Indexing his computer, Deleting Browsing History, and System Restore. I'm not sure if him messing with these settings could have caused his computer to not save anything, or what.
*Should I try to restore Internet History files first, and then try a System Restore? Or should I just do/or do not do a System Restore at all and try something else?
I'm really worried about what he might be hiding from me and would like to resolve this so I can monitor his computer use. Also, if there would be another part of the website I could post this that might be more helpful, Please let me know. Thanks
