Hello Pinkiestar,

I'm not sure you will be able to view the browsing history since it was deleted, but they are storeed at the hidden C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files folder. You might be able to use the free program Recuva to restore the files at that location to see where he was at though.

You might keep him on a Standard account instead and setup Parental Controls on it, then enable website filtering to help block what he can access on the internet.

Hope this helps,

Have you thought about using a keylogger?

Or you could just pretend hes a good boy. 9 / 10 kids in the UK alone have watched some by the age of 11. And if he has deleted the history i think its pretty obvious...
