IE8 doesn't save my hostory or change color on visited links
I'm running IE8 just as I'm used to, but around two weeks ago, it stopped
accepting cookies and the browser history is not kept either. When I visit
some secure sites, they tell me my PC doesn't allow cookies and guide me on
how to correct this, but everything is set normal and I haven't made any
changes (things are as suggested). The browser doesn't keep the history
either, so when I visit a link on i.e. Google or Flickr, the link doesn't
change color to show it is a visited link and I can't see history in the
"Favorites" drop down history list (and I've checked the link colors, they
are set differently :-)).
I've been boxing with this for two days now and have found, that if I remove
the check mark in "enable protected mode", everything works fine.
I've tried resetting IE8, removing it from Windows installed files and tried
deleting history, nothing helps.
I might add, that I have set 250MB of space for temp and history to be kept
for 170 days.
Hope you can help!
Thanks a lot.
