Internet browser items

  • Cache (Temporary Internet Files): When a web page is requested and delivered to your browser, the images and documents associated with the web page are saved in a temporary Internet file or cache so that the next time they are requested; they are accessed from your computer and not over the web (unless a change has occurred). Support Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox.

  • Cookies: A cookie is a small message of text stored on your computer. The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customized Web pages for them. When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser, which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same Web site, your browser will send the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom Web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page you might see a welcome page with your name on it.

  • Visited URL History: Browser such as IE/Netscape/Firefox saves web pages, images from visited web sites into your hard drive whether you click on them or not, so that next time when you visit you won't have to re-download the image. But this means that many megabytes of data of all types get saved to you hard drive. Anyone who can use your PC can tell where you have been browsing on the web.

  • Recently Typed URLs: Any website addresses you manually type into the address bar are stored and displayed in the address drop-down box. Selecting this option will safely remove the record of typed in addresses.

  • IE index.dat files: There are multiple Index.dat files in different directories that keep a copy of whatever there is in that folder and they continue keeping those records even after you have deleted the contents of those folders. These files can be very hard to find and erase. If you are in Windows, even with "Show hidden files and folders" enabled, these files are not visible and cannot be found if you do a search for these files. The reason that these files are so invisible is that they are not just hidden, they have been designated as "system" files. System files and folders are treated differently in DOS and Windows and are effectively cloaked from casual searches.

  • Last Download location: Files and file components that you have downloaded from the web are stored in directories on your computer. Examples are Active X and Java Applets. Sometimes these files are harmless, sometimes they can contain virus, spy ware, or ad ware applications.

  • Autocomplete History: Browser can store a record of almost everything that you typed into any web site form. Form data can be things such as all the keywords you have ever typed into a search engine and personal information such as your name and address.

  • Preferences: These settings are preferences you set in Netscape or Firefox from the Edit menu. This option deletes any changes you made to the preferences and sets them back to the default settings.
