You Left Internet Tracks all over my computer!!
You may not be aware of what's happening as your browser guides you to Ebay or perhaps to a less tasteful site. All you do is click a link from your favorites menu right? Yes and no. That's all the interaction you may have noticed, but your browser is doing much more behind the scenes.
Every time you surf to a web site, pictures from that web site, the information you typed in while at the site and the address you typed in are all stored on your computer. Anyone with just a little bit of computer knowledge can easily see where and what you've been doing while surfing on the internet. As a test of proof - do this:
Open up Internet Explorer
Look in the middle of the window that just opened for Temporary Internet Files.
Click on the settings button.
The window that opened for you should look similar to this
Click on view files and hold on to your seat.
See all those files? These represent all the places you've surfed to.
In the settings menu that you clicked to view all the temporary internet files is also where you can control the attributes (behavior) of the browser. You may specify how many temporary internet files you want stored on your computer and control cookies in this window. Have a look around at these settings. Click on the help button to get a better idea of what these functions do.
