Windows 7: Back button list gets filled with what looks like cookies.

MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
 
 
Back button list gets filled with what looks like cookies.

Last time I had a 'back button' problem it was because of a nasty rootkit virus, which you guys helped me find and destroy. Still had to reinstall Win 7 but no big deal.

This time, however, when it's not working I right click the back arrow icon and see a list of some 30 duplicate entries of what looks like cookie addresses. The only one I recognize is doubleclick.com. It's different everytime and when it happens it's all the same address over and over again.

Is this some new tactic by companies to keep you on their website or something? I've been doing a lot of online shopping lately and this is happening more and more often. I've also noticed that sometimes when I do a google search for an item and follow a link, I can't get back to the search results. It vanishes from the back button list and the back button icon is grayed out.

Using IE 9 btw.
