Windows 7: IE9 on win7 no longer adds webpages to history

IE9 on win7 no longer adds webpages to history

IE9 has stopped adding webpages to my history (view => explorer-bars => history). This has been happening for 3 days now. The only entries in history are now regular files (like JPGs) under the heading "Computer", but no URLs or webpages are listed below that.

Two days ago I increased my history storage from 250MB to 512MB and increased the number of days to store from 250 to 512. Unfortunately, nothing has changed.

What happened? How do I fix this?

PS: I don't have any registery cleaners or WINZIP utilities on the computer (ideas that others have mentioned elsewhere).
