Here's How:

  1. Open either Microsoft Internet Explorer or the Windows Control Panel.

  2. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu and choose the Internet Options... menu. In Control Panel. open the Internet Options list item. In either case, a new window titled "Internet Properties" appears.

  3. In the Temporary Internet Files section of the Internet Properties window, click the "Settings..." button. A new "Settings" window appears.

  4. In the "Settings" window, click the "View Files..." button. After a brief delay, a new Windows Explorer window appears. This window displays all of the Temporary Internet Files stored on the computer and their location on the local hard drive. The window also displays the URL where each temporary file came from



You can see that alot of info is given includeing date viewed, link website visited, and a timestamp.


If they deleted all through the internet option, this information more then likely will not be available anymore.


I hope this helps.
