Hi.I have IE7 pro add-on set to delete history every time I close I.Explorer.But just noticed that trying Google for websites that I have visited recently,it is empty.So probably have the same problem as yourself.Any of my regular websites that I visit I keep them in my favorites so can get to them quickly if needed.
