Deleted Internet Explorer Browsing History with Wisecare 365

Browsing history is how I use the Internet - for my purposes it's more convenient than bookmarks. Today I accidentally used Wise Care 365 Pro's Privacy Protector to delete it all. Fortunately it didn't touch my other browsers. Unfortunately, the browser and consequently the history I most use is the Internet Explorer history. It's all gone. I have Internet Explorer 10 I think.

I have Recuva but I don't know where to look for the files, or if they can even be recovered. If they can and anyone can help me, I would feel intensely grateful.

Why not a system restore.

PS.

Another example of a so called registry "cleaner" doing it's work. They are not needed and cause more problems than they fix.

Can I still do that without a restore point?

I created one now, but there wasn't one before.

You would need to go back to before you deleted your history. I'm not familiar with the software you used maybe someone else is.
Good luck.

Maybe Wisecare has a way to go back but frankly I've had it to here and more with c*ap software like these. What can be added except folk fall for these all the time.

Wisecare likely wiped your restore points.

If you'd used bookmarks, you could have imported them from Firefox or such.

It probably did. I had several before.

I've registered at their forums to ask if anything can be done.

Thank you both anyway.
