Sorry it was a bit difficult to read your post because there was no punctuation.

But if I understand properly, your Address Bar in IE7 does not save web sites. Is that right?

If so, then perhaps your Browsing history settings are incorrect.

In IE7 goto Tools > Internet Options. Under the General tab, click the "Settings" button for "Browsing history".

In the new window, does the settings for "Temporary Internet Files" show "Never"? If so, change it to one of the other 3 options.

Under "History", how many days are specified to save the list of web sites you visit? If none, then increase the number of days.

You may have to restart the browser for the settings to take effect. See if that helps.
