Windows 7: Internet History

Internet History

I thought i'd post this as it could look like a bit of a contradicition at first glance.

When deleting internet browser history there's an option to 'Preserve Favourites website data'. This will store all information only relating to site stored as a Favourite. The previous screen however, had the 'Delete browsing history on exit' option. The two would seem to contradict each other so i've had a look into it and found that even if you have the 'Delete browsing history on exit' option selected it does not override the 'Preserve Favourites website data'.

I originally thought that it might (what with there being other bugs with current builds) but have only just come to test it so i thought i'd post this to pass on the information.

Doesn't seem contradictory, it's an option of it.

IE9: no internet history
I've noticed my IE9 is not recording the history of the internet like it used to.. It does record local visits of my computer (pictures, etc).. It stopped about three weeks ago.. Why did it stop, and how can I get it working again?
