New here and have a question. Hopefully someone here can answer this for me. If the history on the computer is cleared, files, cookies and all, can it still be found somehow? In other words, if you wanted to check up on what sites someone was going to on your computer, can that be done if they clear things out? Is there another way to track it besides those special keystroke programs?

Thanx! :thumbsup:

Once it's cleared, as far as the cache goes, it's cleared.

Hello foreverstill and welcome to BC,

Due to respect for peoples privacy, I am unable to help you with recovering browsing history, I hope you understand.

If you are worried about somebody accessing unsuitable sites, why not set up a separate standard/limited account for them and use some parental control software.

Or maybe check out something like OpenDNS.

OpenDNS content filter options example image.

Edit: Wording.
