Hi kiwi
You still have History in IE8.
Just open IE and open your Faorites Icon at the top left of the screen.
After favorites opens you will see at the top a TAB for History.
If you have IE setup with default setting you should be able to see past websites.
You can also setup how many days you want to save in the Tools, Internet Options, General Tab, Browser History area and Settings tab.
See the number of days you want to keep at the bottom .

Now the other part of the question about knowing where users have been on your HD is another story. You may need an additional software to do that.
Can someone else help here?

Hope this helps

I think I know of a piece of software that is what you are looking for. Before I give you the link I must make it clear that I did not try it, do not know how it will affect your computer and suggest that you make sure that it is virus free before using. That disclaimer out of the way you can decide it this software is what you are looking for.
