For example, wen I seach in google

i type C, and a list of keywords with letter C appear and these keywords that i've used to search before

i just wonder if other user account on my computer can see the same keywords or he/she only can see his/her own keywords that he/she has used, because there are 2 users on my computer

It depends on your operating system. If you are using Windows XP or Windows 2000 and you have separate logins, you won't be able to see each others previously used keywords that you have searched for.

So, for example, if you searched for porn, the other user won't know unless you both use the same login/user account. :thumbsup:

No. With separate profiles, other users won't be able to see any of that stuff. That also includes recent documents, run commands and browser history.

To be really safe, install Ad-aware se 1.06. As well as cleaning up spyware it also gets cleans your browser history (and other stuff like that) if you want it to. :thumbsup:

Cheers,
Nathan
