Protect your privacy - Erasing your Internet and Computer Tracks

This is important privacy information you need to know about:

Your computer tracks your activities, and saves the information to the hard disk, including:

  • The web sites you have visited - web pages, pictures, movies, videos, cookies, etc.

  • Windows Run history, recent documents, temporary files, open/save dialog box, etc.

  • Applications like Office, Realplayer, Mediaplayer, QuickTime,Winzip also log where you have been.

Your web browser's built-in privacy functions will not protect you because almost most of your information can not be removed manually.

What your computer stores about you:

  • Location Bar History: the websites you visit which Windows' does not automatically remove.

  • Cookie: Web sites place small [ text ] files on your browser to keep track of your on-line activity. Cookies are really useful when you want a web site to auto-sign you into a registration process. These cookies are used to track you through the site. With Tracks Eraser, you can select which cookies you want to erase and which to keep.

  • Cache (Temporary Internet Files ) & History: Your browser saves visited web pages and  images to your hard drive whether you clicked on them or didn't. This is to save you from having to re-download the information on your next visit. It also means that a lot of data is being saved to your hard drive. Anyone who uses your computer can discover your browsing habits.

  • Auto-complete: Internet Explorer stores a record of nearly everything that you type into any web site form (name, address) and keywords typed into a search engine.

  • Index.dat: Your index.dat which is not easily accessible contains sites visited and index of cookies which can not be erased manually. Even if you clean up your cache, cookies, and history from within the Internet Explorer, the index.dat files can not be erased and will continue to store information about what web sites you have visited and what cookies have been saved.

  • Internet Explorer Plug-Ins: Plug-ins provide functionality that your browser cannot including chat room and games.  You never really know what is being stored about you.

  • Recent Documents: This lists the most recently used documents that you have accessed. Any of them can be opened by clicking on the document's name.

  • Windows Search History: Windows saves these files so that when you want to do searches, you don't need to re-enter the information. This lets others know what you have been searching.

  • Start Menu Run History: Windows stores these programs in the start menu run text box so that you don't have to re-enter the information, but it allows others to know what programs you are using.

  • Windows Temp. files: Windows saves them to a special folder normally called \temp. You should clean it regularly to remove traces of your computer activity and to save hard drive space.

  • Open/Save History: Windows records files opened and files saved, in the registry. Every time you open or save a file, it displays a list of files accessed which is easily available to others.

  • Office Recent Documents: Other than Recent Documents above, the Office Recent Documents file stores recently accessed office files - Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, etc. - in the system registry. They are not deleted when you delete Recent Documents.

  • RealPlayer/MediaPlayer Playlist: RealPlayer/MediaPlayer saves the Internet location and video / sound files in the registry for others to see and access. 

  • Other Applications: Most applications and programs store recently- accessed files and history data. To prevent others seeing them, you can erase them with Tracks Eraser Pro's free plug-ins.
