On like television and stuff they always show files that have been deleted and stuff and are capable of seeing websites you've visited and files you had on your computer. Is that even possible? I've always thought it was conceivable, but I've never really seen a way to access it.

Does anyone know? I am not very computer literate.

Deleted files, moreover, can remain on your hard drive for some time, until they are overwritten by other files in the course of operating your computer. Deleting any file in Windows is very much like ripping out the table of contents in a manual---the chapters are still there.
