    Tools --> Internet Options --> Browsing history section ( which is on the general tab ) Then click on the settings button and it should show current location there. If thats what you mean.

    Found it! it was a hidden file. had to un-hide the system folders within folder options to see it. it doesn't have the history.ie5 file within now goes straight into today/last week etc.

    thanks Gecko for your help.

    i was after the browsing history file. in ie6/5 etc it lives in C:\Documents and Settings\Profilename\Local Settings\History\History.IE5.

    in ie7 it appears that it lives in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\History
