Hello. I deleted my internet explorer history by mistake. Could you recommend a download link for 'secura' - as apparently this could help restore deleted internet explorer history? Not sure where to find secura. Kind regards.

Hello nbains,
Have you tried system restore ?.
If that does not work, a look into the log files can let you recover deleted Internet history.
The 'index.dat' file in the Internet Explorer history, is the log file that stores all the information of the operations you have performed.
This is one of the best ways because, deleting the Internet history does not have any impact on this file.
You will have to download an index.dat reader to understand the file and get the information you want, (links in previous post).

Hi stoneys-nutz Hi people

When i go to your link it is opening another link Click here to run a free scan for Windows errors before installing Index.dat viewer when i am clicking the link
it is open another windows it saysto do some scan but it is not giving me the download of Index.dat viewer
What is the difference between Index.dat Viewer (free) and index dat reader for free
Should i do the scan first and then it will let me download the software
about Google desktop search software Because you gave this link How to Recover Deleted Internet History that is the reason i was trying to understand about this software and if it is doing the same job as software you gave me
What is the difference between
Thank you
edrum
