Windows 7: History is not retained in IE9

History is not retained in IE9

I never had a problem before with other versins of IE but now when I go check my history all it shows is where I have been on my computer, nothing about where I have been on the net. I uninstalled to make sure it was not a faulty install. I made sure I had enough disk space, I made sure it was not deleting as soon as I shut down, its set to 20 days. Went to the location where it supposed to be stored and even there it only has files I have accessed that are on my computer. It is showing very recent files in my drop down address bar but that is it. I cleaned up my cookies, cleared cache, deleted temp files. Running out of options.

Is there a way to have start->run history kept while not keeping a history of the recently launched programs from the menu? I know under the properties you have "Store and display recently opened programs in the Start menu", but this is what controls both. I'm figuring theres probably some...
