Remotely view Internet browsing history

IE History View Screenshot

Each time that you type a URL in the address bar or click on a link in Internet Explorer browser, the URL address is automatically added to the history index file, and this utility reads all information from the history file and displays the list of all URLs that the user has visited in the last few days.

One of the great advantages of IE History View is that it is a portable application and there is no need for installation. The application can be run locally to audit the local computer and all the local users or it can be used to remotely audit a computer in your network.

That should be everything, now you should be able to get a fully detail list of the browsing history of the user.
