Download Tweak UI 1.33 at http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_desc...fid,2803,00.asp

Use the Paranoia tab of Tweak UI 1.33, (PowerToys for Windows XP's version of Tweak UI lacks this tab, but the tab in Tweak UI 1.33 works fine in XP. The two versions of Tweak UI can coexist on an XP-based system, as long as you don't try to use them at the same time.)

You'll find a number of options in the 'Covering your tracks' list. If you check any of these items and click OK, Windows will clear them each time you boot.
Document history: This is the list of recently opened documents you get by selecting Start, Documents (or in XP, Start, Recent Documents).

Internet Explorer history: This clears visited links and the drop-down list of recently visited URLs in IE's Address Bar toolbar. It does not reliably clear the browser's history list; to empty that, select IE's Tools, Internet Options, click the General tab, and select Clear History.

Run history: This option removes the list of commands that you typed in the Start, Run dialog box.

I never reccomend clearing out your cookie files,but you might want to manually delete some:
start,my computer,disk drive [c],documents & settings,cookies. delete those you don't care to keep.
see how to set cookie permissions here
now,delete those pre-fetch files as they will give you away too
start,my computer,disk drive [c],windows,pre-fetch [you'll also find your temp files and program files here].
you can clean out your temp files as well.
depends on how parinoid you really are as to which folders you empty and which you partially empty.

someone who has sufficient computer knowledge would be able to view which sites that computer has visited by searching for index.*

For an expert, no matter what you did someone could trace where your computer has been.

Better to stay off the sites that you're not supposed to be on.
