Cache

September 14th, 2007

August 19th, 2007

Index.dat is a file used by Microsoft Internet Explorer to store web addresses, search queries, and recently opened files.

Even if you try to delete cookies, delete cache and erase Internet files through Windows Explorer, all you are really doing is deleting the reference to the file and not the actual file itself.

Clear History

January 30th, 2007

Whether you know it or not, your computer is compiling a very comprehensive record of you and your online activities.
