I have an IEF report here that a colleague of mine needed help deciphering. In the "URL" field in the Internet explorer main history, are file names and the path in which to find the files. The files are gone and just the names remain, but the odd thing is, there should be web addresses not files on the local machine , right? Kind of confused.

Right? Why? I mean, URLs can be file names. file:// is obvious possibility, but you can have anything here. I've seen URLs used with Java libraries that use URLs like zip: // foo.zip/file.txt (foo.zip is the archive, file.txt is a file inside that archive).

What scheme do these URLs have?

I can think of at least another possibility, though.

I thought the URL field was for the web address not for what was downloaded from it. Other reports I have seen show the website that was visited. Some say it's a text file, but it tells what site it came from.
