Please test to see if any of those wikipedia websites go into History when you visit them today. Open IE11. Open and pin the History panel. Visit en.wikipedia.org. Expand the history link for Today as needed. Are there any entries for en.wikipedia.org?

If not, you could try clearing just the History:
Internet Options/Properties >
General tab >
Browsing history section >
Delete button >
Delete Browsing History window >
Uncheck Preserve Favorites website data.
Place a check by History.
Uncheck the other options.
Delete button.

Now test the wikipedia website to see if it is in History.
But I don't want to wipe out my history. I still haven't updated IE11 and I think that will probably erase the history too but might fix my problem. I saved the tabs I need in favourites would exporting IE10 favourites work when I import with IE11?

IE favorites do not need to be exported and then imported when you change versions of IE. IE favorites are nothing more than shortcut files inside the Favorites folder on your hard drive. You can work with them via the Windows (file) Explorer if you want.

IE's History should stay when you change to IE11. However, your History is not working right. The upgrade to IE11 might remove the History to try and fix that.

IE 11 will NOT install on an RTM system - and should not be offered by WU.

Oh crap I can't believe I haven't changed that! Im running Service pack 1 and it shows as genuine
Also this is on my laptop so those specs don't apply, this is a Home premium version I believe
