I have had to reinstall everything on my PC after a problem last week after upgrading to IE8 totally screwed my PC. I am running Win XP SP3 and have gone back to IE7 but have some problems that were not there before. I have downloaded all applicable updates from Microsoft apart from .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 3.1. I have enable tabbed browsing as before but although I can see tabs and click on them I no longer get the option of opening a link in a new tab when right clicking on a link. When right clicking on a link all I can do is open in a new window. There is no menu item for another tab. Another problem that has arisen is that when trying to view my browsing History I see no list of web sites visited whatsoever. The only History I can see is whatever programs I have been using on my PC itself.
I have gone through Internet options to reset History cache size and have it set to save 20 days history but to no avail. What has happened?
