    Some times, before I go to work in the mornig,
    I star my PC to leave it downloading something, then, when I arrive later and whant to surf internet I find that my "IE History" has been deleted.

    The only thing that ocurs to me,
    is that my brother breaks into my room, surfs the net looking for "who knows what" -yea right- and then tries to erase his tracks...
    could this be true?, is there something else I can do to prove me right or wrong?

    In any case, I guess I'll put a keyword
    cus he might end finding my tracks... .
    Just kidding here.

    You can do this for firefox, so i guess you could do this for IE

    You can set it to delete the history every day, 2 days or weeks or whatever.

    check your settings

    Put a password on the login, then press windowsbutton+L when you leave then he can't use it without a) putting in the password or b) restarting.

    Sounds like he is using it for off-hand usage, but...maybe you should let him? The lengths I had to go to to get porn off the internet when I was a nipper was ridiculous. And then it was in ASCII :crying:

    oh i would be harsh, especially if you have ntfs

    there's a setting - I thought it was in TweakUI, but couldn't find it when I looked. - that allows you to set IE to dump history & cache on close or logoff, but I couldn't find it right now. if nothing else, you can use group policy to do it.
    Perhaps this is what's happening on your machine?

    this post is guaranteed 100% parrot-free

    Seriously, I cringe a little when I realise how much my parents could see what I had been browsing when I was younger. No wonder they put a password on the computer...

    You think a disappearing history is wierd?

    I'm currently working in Belfast, on a pc I've never used before.
    I started to type in "filesh..." and it popped up with the autocomplete option straight to this board.

    Now that's wierd.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Either that or lynx's boss is tracing his surfing habits to discover exactly why it takes him more than three hours to replace a stick of ram
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    --Good for them if they survive.
