If you are using IE, go into tools then options, then click clear history (I'm going on memory as I don't use IE at home).

better yet reformat the hard drive......use the original windows disk....she will never have access to any of your info......cause there are other ways to view cookies , temp files ect.....so you should reformat.

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't gonna happen anyway.

Hi Heidiho

You ALSO want to do the following

Tools - internet options - delete cookies

also do

Tools - internet options - delete files (AND) click delete offline files as well

But I would agree with wdawson - reformatting the drive is the safest way.

best!

Marko

I use IE Privacy Keeper. You can download it (it's free) and then uninstall it after you're finished.....

well if you don't want to get rid of some programs....then you can not reformat.....this wipes all things off the drive and all you will have is windows and no other programs.
